Hi All,
I am developing a samll application for my personal use. I want to use XML file for data storage and retrieval. and I want use JSP for view layer. In JSP I would like to use JSTL as this is very small application. This application has one JSP to add data to XML file and another JSP to search data from XML file. I know the XML tags and SQL tags available in JSTL.

My problem is "Can I set the datasource in SQL tag as the specified XML file instead of setting MySQL or ORACLE?" If so How would it be?
and can I fire SQL queries for fetching, inserting and updating data in the XML file.

Please anyone know how to do this reply with example if possible.

Thanks in advance.

Prasad Babu Dandu, XML is good. But not anywhere. I think you should create your own tags to work with xml. But there is a question. Why dont you use database? for example sybase anywhere embedded ...
