Subject AW: How to make a simple news/updates list
Date Thu, 06 May 2004 19:23:21 GMT
hi anders,

based on these requirements I don't see why you'd currently need more than a
raw xml data files solution. if you can foresee a need for more
flexilibility in the future you might want to hide that access mechanism
behind a corresponding contract/interface.

never forget: KISS ;-)
