parameters, http $headers and so on. It would use xpath instead of sql to
fetch data from a data store $connection. A servlet controller would
probably be the layer under that to make the magic happen. Out would come
a stream of xml content to be passed onto presentation formatting
stylesheets. Hopefully, all these layers could be compiled into one for efficiency.
Is it possible? Good, bad, or ugly?
Take a look at Apache Cocoon http://xml.apache.org/cocoon.
