WinFS and ObjectSpaces Part 3 - Proliferation of Data Access APIs, and why we worry about it.
WinFS and ObjectSpaces Part 3 - Proliferation of Data Access APIs, and why we worry about it. "So in other words, shipping a technology like ObjectSpaces has cost and long term consequences. One of the decision points on merging ObjectSpaces with WinFS was that the charters were similar enough that customers would be using both. The problem was that the implementation and API were different enough and in some cases had impedance mismatch that shipping ObjectSpaces before WinFS would have caused problems for developers wishing to migrate in the future. Also, it would have made ObjectSpaces a lame duck, deprecated after the first version solution."
