o/x mapping's the word

one of the talks i give on the nfjs symposium is "xml data binding with [dennis sosnoski's most excellent] jibx." well, i've come to the conclusion that i'm tired of repeatedly saying 'xml data binding.' it's a mouthful, it takes too long, and it doesn't help much when i try to relate xml data binding to database data binding.. i mean: o/r mapping. so i've just decided that o/x mapping's the word. for one, it's easier to say; conceptually it's a "raprochement" to o/r mapping, and the bottom line is that it feels better (at least at the moment, though i think it's gonna stick).

what do you think? are you tired of the term 'xml data binding'?

well, there it is: a new term for an old friend: o/x mapping.
