Subject ? about using XSP with a custom producer
Date Wed, 21 Jun 2000 17:56:52 GMT
<!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">
<html>
situation:
<br>&nbsp; 1) I&nbsp;have a server program that generates XML from
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; a database of animals
in a zoological
collection
<br>&nbsp; 2) I&nbsp;have a cocoon producer that connects to that server.
<br>&nbsp; 3) I use cocoon to generate html and thus use a web
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; browser as a database
client.
<p>problem:
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp; 1) I'd like to display dynamically generated data.
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; a) specifically
an animals
age calculated by
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
current date minus birth date
<p>question:
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp; 1) At what point should XSP&nbsp;get into the act?
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; a) should
the initial URL
be to an XSP&nbsp;page
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
which somehow includes output from my
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
producer?
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
b) or should the initial
URL&nbsp;be to my producer
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
which generates an XSP&nbsp;page?
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
c) or should I&nbsp;be
doing something completely
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
different?
