Re: FW: XSL with scripting
Didier, Yes, eventually this will probably be what happens, but for now, since Netscape does not support XSL, unless you have a plugin, and IE supports it only in beta, I recommend using the XSL processor on the server. We do this here at MITRE and quite effectively. We query a couple of different databases and turn the query result into an XML document. Depending on the request, we can return just the XML or we can run it through a stylesheet. The reason we allow returning the XML is so that we can provide a service to any other applications wishing to get at the data. Its actually quite efficient, thought I do agree that it would be faster just to convert the data into the desired format. We lose the flexibility of the stylesheets if we do that and we decided that the tradeoff was in favor of XSL. --Keith Didier PH Martin wrote: > > Hi Keith, > > After thinking more about you said, and tell me if I am wrong.
