Retrieving server generated XML with JQuery

Hello Experts,

I am new to this concept so if there is a better way to accomplish the following please let me know.

Currently, I have an data.aspx page and in the Page Load I get data from a db and create a stringbuilder object (myXML) and pass that back to the calling page in an HTTP Response stream like so: Response.Write(myXML)

I would like to parse this XML from the calling page using JQuery, but I am having trouble getting this to work.  I've found some helpful documentation using JQuery to parse XML given and XML document.  However, I don't have a document.  I am sending the xml via the Response.Write method.

Any help is appreciated.  If there is a better way to send the XML string into the calling page, I'm open to that.  I just need to be able to call the XML string using JQuery.


protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    //code that gets data from database
 
    //code that constructs xml with stringbuilderXml
 
    //Write object to an HTTP response stream
       Response.Write(stringbuilderXml)
}
}

Not sure how you tight all together using JQuery method at the moment based on the posted. But, you can read the XML as string instead of parse XML document instead.
