hi ranchers
i am studing how to apply this ajax stuff.

which i undertand to be basically javascript and xml over http.

In planning a data driven web application ,i was wondering the following things.

now the question is does ajax require the the data from a relation database to be in xml format?

if it does then

is there a lib/api that converts data from a relational database to xml and back.

is xml beans any good?

thank you.

You are not reqiured to use XML with Ajax, you can use what ever you want. All Ajax is a way to send data to the server and retrieve the results without posting back. Therefore the server side page that you request can either return back a string or an XML document that you can use since we have teh responseText and responeXML properties.
