Delivering XML in an Apache Environment [B4]


This session will discuss practicalities of delivering XML on standard Web servers running Apache. It will concentrate on the AxKit system, which is a mod-perl addon for managing dynamic translation of XML to HTML on the server. AxKit, like its Java-based cousin Cocoon, offers an immediate and extensible way to serve up XML documents. We will look at issues such as mapping XSLT stylesheets to documents, cacheing, and the creation of dynamic pages using XSP.

We will attempt to tinker with and enhance a running AxKit setup on the basis of audience suggestions and queries.
