I am new to XML and looking for information and people's thoughts on an XML
interpretive language called TAME which is produced by a company named
Virtualsellers and was included with the Red Hat Linux LAL CD-Rom.
Anybody ever heard of it?
Anybody ever use it?
I don't know much about it, but the statements about its capabilities sound
pretty awesome with lots of potential.
Does it sound too good to be true? Is it?
What makes it different, special or better than anything else? Is it a
good tool for WAP? Is it compatable with official WC3 recommendations?
I am excited about this language and want to know more about it, especially
any "hands-on" experience with it.
Any thoughts, experiences, suggestions or information would be greatly
Here are some descriptions of tame from the website www.tameable.com:
TAME™ (Tag-Activated Markup Enhancer) is a platform-independent, server-
side, interpretive programming language. The scope and functionality of the
Java, so you can incorporate and continue to use applets and elements you
have already developed. TAME is fully integrated with XML (eXtensible
Markup Language): with TAME, you can create your own XML code at will.
TAME™(Tag-Activated Markup Enhancer) is poised to set new Web standards by
anticipating future Web applications. As the Internet's dexterity builds,
more tasks and functions will migrate to the Web. As entrepreneurs and Web
pioneers create groundbreaking uses for the Internet, its possibilities are
virtually endless. TAME is an emerging programming language created with
the future in mind.
Why TAME Works Better TAME is a platform-independent, server-side
interpretive programming language.The scope and functionality of the
compatible with these languages and most others and can incorporate most of
their elements and applets. TAME also contains an XML object interpreter
and is extendible by creating custom XML tag classes. Combining TAME with
XML will let your imagination run wild!
TAME with XML maintains platform independence. It can be deployed on Linux,
Unix, and Microsoft Windows NT operating systems.
Another value TAME offers is server-side processing, which greatly reduces
With TAME, the freedom is increased even more by ensuring a page will
appear the same way no matter the Web browser or operating system. TAME
contains more than 360 predefined functions, which cuts the learning curve
that new and seasoned programmers would otherwise have to surmount when
using this language. Moreover, the set functions save experienced
programmers time by reducing repetitive tagging.

helps connect (through the Web) geographically-dispersed business units
such as manufacturing, fulfillment, and distribution.
Tame can access multiple types of databases including MS-Access, MS-SQL,
Oracle and others.
We expect to release our Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) application
later in this fiscal year, keeping us in step with new directions for
manipulating Extensible Markup Language (XML).
Features in the latest TAME release include: native connections to Oracle 8
and 8i databases, inclusion of SmartHeap SMP memory management utilities
and improved FastCGI performance. By integrating the SmartHeap for SMP
memory management system, TAME has added improved scalability to
applications deployed in multi-CPU environments.
The improved memory management system helps ensure increases in system
performance as more CPUs are added to the computing environment.
The FastCGI protocol allows system processes to initiate when an
application is started and remain available until needed again. This is a
vast improvement over CGI that exits after a request is complete and must
be re-initiated before it can perform the next request.
