Abstract Water(TM) is a new Web services and general-purpose programming language that allows you to program in the ConciseXML syntax. Water is an open object-oriented language designed to simplify the creation of new Web services. Water is extremely flexible and adheres to a"Learn Once, Use Everywhere" philosophy where data, logic, and presentation have a uniform representation. Water also implements a capability security model to provide secure execution in protected domains.
Water builds upon the ideas from a number of different languages such as Scheme, Self, Lisp, Java, SmallTalk, Self, JavaScript, HTML, and XML.
