I have been looking into the Jazzscheme platform recently and am very
interested by it. I am trying to determine if it suits all my needs,
as I would like to become more familiar with the language in order to
develop applications with it. One of the things which I am searching
the source code for is xml support, but I haven't been able to find
it. Is there any support for xml in the current Jazzscheme version?

Hi Chris,

Short answer is no.

But nice coincidence, last week another Jazz user, Dominic Charley-Roy asked me the same question. We brainstormed and came to the conclusion that the most interesting solution seemed to integrate the SXML library (http://okmij.org/ftp/Scheme/SXML.html) to Jazz. From my understanding, SXML is the way to go for XML in Scheme. It is well known, documented, functional and high-performance from what I read.

We decided Dominic and me that he would first get to know SXML by using it directly in Gambit (from the Gambit dumping grounds: http://dynamo.iro.umontreal.ca/~gambit/wiki/index.php/Dumping_Grounds) and next week we'll sit together and integrate it in Jazz which should be easy.

I'll keep you posted.
