OpenSource Alternative to CDDB

geoGIF Alternative to CDDB protocol (141 comments)

Excellent idea. I've been digging into XML over the past few weeks, and this is a perfect application for it. Make XML the canonical form for storing the data. All other formats are translated from XML. For example, it would be a snap to write Java servlet that read the XML and returned the info in CDDB format. Ok, we need an XML DTD tailored for CD data. And of course it should be open and publicly reviewed. Randy Weems rweems@nospam.hotmail.com
