Subject Re: Generating XML - Design decisions
Date Fri, 23 Apr 2004 13:51:22 GMT
Hi,

I agree with all that has been said here, and as a newbie i can tell
XSP+SQL for reading is really easy and OJB not so hard if like me you
use 10% of its incredible capabilities.
But!!: speaking about full XML website, i'm surprised to see nobody
mentioned native XML databases and XML:DB?
