I've been using XT for some weeks now to generate HTML from XML, passing
the latter through an XSL stylesheet. This works great, and in general I
highly recommend it as an excellent XSL-learning tool. (MSIE5's sometimes
spurious "validity errors" drive me nuts.)
The downside is that I've got to maintain TWO copies of my XML documents:
the raw XML itself, and the HTMLized form. It also means that I can't
simply update the XML document instances and have the changes immediately
reflected in a browser.
So I was wondering: Is there a generally-(freely-)available, well, *thing*
that I can install on my website that would serve up these documents on the
fly, presenting them to browsers as HTML? I'm thinking of a CGI Perl/Python
script or, maybe, a servlet? Can XT itself be used for this purpose? I'm
kind of shooting blind here because I don't know enough about Java
(especially about configuring apps on the server) to even know if
"servelet" is the right term, but you probably get the idea.
Note: Commercial "XML databases" and other such products are not an option.
I'm not a corporation. And I don't operate my own Web server, so the less
likely the solution is to blow my ISP's mind the happier we'll all be. :)
