I have been thinking about this for the past few days. This is a mystery issue for me.
BACKGROUND STORY - REGARDING JSP:
Prior to studying for this IBM XML exam, I studied and passed the SCWCD Exam. So sometimes I still have "JSP on my brain". When it comes to changing the value of variables at run time, anything is possible using JSP. Any sort of data and parameters/variables can be entered by the user and be changed "at run time" or "at execution time" using HTML forms or input fields.
BACKGROUND STORY - REGARDING XML:
From my point of view, there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that can be "changed by the user at run time" or "changed by the user at execution time". (At least not according to any of the material I have studied up to this point for the XML Exam.)
However, I am sure that on the actual IBM XML exam (which I did not pass), that one of the scenario questions asked a general question regarding this topic.
So what is the deal here? What piece of the puzzle am I lacking? Is there something within XSLT tranformations that I don't know about?
What part of XML can be "changed by the user at run time"???
In fact, I can not think of anything I have studied so far that is about "user entry fields" in XML. Yes, there are xsl:param and xsl:variable fields, but the user can not change the data already determined within the xml/xsl documents.
thanks!
