RE: XML Feeds vs SQL Queries
Hi Peter: It's early in the project and as with most under-defined. Initially I am giving them a dashboard with categorized information in tab-organized gridview/detailView combos, but an RSS Reader (rssFeed) is located in the left panel. Being new to implementing RSS in the web page, I'm still weighing options. Having the RSS client is useful for things other than providing database information (eg, local radar and specified news feeds), but to an inexperienced eye (mine), it seems like an ideal way to distribute scheduled reports. I seem to get resistance to this idea and I was wondering if there is real world practicum for how to divide up the tasks. To answer your question, at the moment most of the requirements deal with information behind the firewall. On the other hand, since it is part of a national system, that changes post-deployment and then one loses control of the client space (as one should). The specs are oriented toward ebXML/SOAP but that seems like overkill for document/messages that are one-way (pushed). len -----Original Message----- From: Peter Hunsberger [mailto:peter.hunsberger@g...] Sent: Wednesday, August 08, 2007 12:48 PM To: Len Bullard Cc: xml-dev@l...

For example, if we need highly customizable distributed clients I'd likely end up looking at XML with client side XSLT. Or conversely, if no customization was required everything was local, behind the firewall and we already had a MS environment then SQL might make sense... -- Peter Hunsberger This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
