Google Releases Open Source Protocol Buffers
Google's Software Engineering Team has developed yet another tool to come to the aid of the webmasters. The application consists of Protocol Buffers that, as it is stated on the company's blog, "allow you to define simple data structures in a special definition language, then compile them to produce classes to represent those structures in the language of your choice." When dealing with large amounts of code, the message needs to be compressed in classes, which is exactly what Protocol Buffers do.
