Hello.
Basically I'm trying to populate a jQgrid (http://www.trirand.com/blog/ for anyone unfamiliar) and I'm looking for the best method in doing so. I'm using a JNDI reference to a datasource and jQgrid will take resultsets in the form of XML or JSON string. What's the easiest way to go about doing this? Which method would be better to use, XML or JSON? Could anyone provide me with some sample code or reference to help with this task?


Thanks

refer to the documentation:
http://trirand.com/jqgrid/jqgrid.html

specifically look at "Loading Data".

As for json vs xml, it really is a matter of familiarity/preference. I prefer to use xml and not have to deal with having to convert a json string to an actual json object.
