I am developing a web application thought of a situation as in any AJAX call we have to go to server to fetch the data, so why not to persist the data which is going to be used frequently by the user. In order to do so , I wanna to persist the data on client side. May be in XML format.
Can anyone please tell me whether it is possible to store the data on client side in the XML format. And then fetch the data from that XML and show it to client . All this should be like a blackbox to the end user. I mean user should not be aware from where exactly his/her data is fetched from.
Any white paper any link will be greatly be apprieciated.
Thanks in advance
Thanks for the reply. I want to persist my data in XML and that too across sessions. Is it not possible to save XML on client side at some perdefined location and use it as Database.
Web servers have no access to the local file system except through cookies. Only with techniques like (signed!) applets, OCX controls and the like is it possible.
I'm not sure but I think you can store XML in cookies. That meets all your requirements except the specified location.
