Subject Why 3 components handling SQL?
Date Wed, 13 Sep 2006 21:40:06 GMT

Nearly my last question for today and this even more to the developers 
of Cocoon...

Why does Cocoon provide not less than three different ways of handling 
SQL queries?
- The Database Reader
- SQL Transformer
- ESQL Logicsheet

Ok, the Database Reader makes sense if you want to retrieve non-XML data.
But why not a schema/namespace/tag soup usable in XSP as well as a 
transformer or generator?
Or a component being a generator as well as an transformer?

1st case: I want to retrieve XML data from a SQL database -> generator 
passed with the src of the XML file with the query.
2nd case: I have an XSP containing SQL query tags -> transformer 
replacing the query tags with their result

Questions, questions, questions ;-)
