    Posted on May 22, 2012 at 2:12 PM

    I'm wondering anyone has any thoughts on Mach-II and what the controller actually consists of (just the XML file or the XML file plus listeners/filters ). The reason I ask this is that i'm increasing seeing traditional programming constructs in the XML file. - eg, Performing Looping and variable as... read more »
