Building XML Applications with Scripts
- Quick and Functional Scripts make the same promises for XML that they make elsewhere: easy, quick, functional. Not necessarily robust or efficient, but if development time counts more than processing time...
- How scalable? Depending on the situation, scripts may be completely appropriate for application-building. Lightweight processing or simple repetitive tasks are often prime candidates for scripting. Applications that need to keep track of enormous quantities of information are rarely good candidates for scripting.
- Utilities or heavy-duty Scripts' quick-and-dirty nature makes them ideal tools for tasks like pruning XML document trees or performing simple search, replace, and transformation activities.
- Zope as the large-scale exception Zope is an enormous project designed for fairly large-scale work where Python plays a central role.
