How to publish XML data
Posted on 2004-10-19
I need help on the technogly necessary to publish HTML docs from a produt description in XML
I am a c++ programmer creating applications to design our products
I am currently writing the product description into excel files.
the product decription includes test and numerical data (as much as 5000 parameters)
I can write this into an XML file that will not get larger tham about 5 meg.
I am current using VS.net on winnt 4
All my customers are also on the same platform and use IE6
Now what i want to do is:
publish this on our intranet.
View the data in multi formats.
one view for the Eng.
another for purchasing
another for manufacturing
another for sales ect......
My research points to using XSLT and DOM to parse and publish the XML (this is all new to me)
Am I going in the best direction??
