Subject Re: XSP<- XSL<-XML<- for example Xindice
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2002 22:51:04 GMT
Hello Luca,

the XML-Documents stored in the database will include tags representing
dynamic data. In my simple example I used an <xsp-request:get-header
name="user-agent"/> XSP-Tag/Logicsheet.

A more practical example. I plan to maintain an list with all links used on
the site and an collection of media files (mainly pictures and pdf-files).
Editors will use simple tags like <link id="report-2002-01-17-aa"/>.
Uploading and editing the reports will be done by other people. A logicsheet
could accomplish the jop of retrieving the uri from the database.

Makes this sense?

Regards
Stefan
