Subject Re: Storing a xml document uploaded through xmlHttpRequest to a database
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2005 07:43:04 GMT

Can you quote the section of the docs you refer to?

*My* perception is that the SLQ Transformer is the preferred way to
extract data from a databse; ESQL is part of XSP, which the project has
debated deprecating and decided against:

What is true is that the older SQL logicsheet/processor are deprecated -
(under Description)

But there is nothing on the SQL Transformer page to suggest *it* is

But I guess we are moving off-topic here ;-)

It's stated, somewhere in the docs, that the modular database action (an 
action) is the prefered way of inserting/updating/deleting data in to a 
database and esql was prefered for reading from a database. I could use 
esql using a dynamic xsp page, but I would prefer to store the xml 
documen directly from the request stream without any transformation or 
serialization to it, for performance reasons mainly, and simpleness 

I thought the modular database action (an action) was the only way of 
storing binary data to a database. Is there other ways?
