Why are OML and XIF files closed and proprietary?

Why are OML and XIF files closed and proprietary?

  

The OML and XIF files are very complex file formats that support the rich and interconnected internal model of applications built with the OutSystems Agile Platform. Opening the OML and XIF file formats would lead to the possibility of changing the applications internal model outside the OutSystems Agile Platform control.


As usual there is no motivation outside the OutSystems R&D environment to concern with performance, quality, support, and continuity, since those are all concerns supported by the platform itself, OutSystems has decided not to disclose the OML and XIF file formats in the best interest of the Agile Platform customers.
