No comments on #1 question
about #2, normally what we do is wrap the object call in XML message - so
when incoming XML document coming in, it'll automaticly mapping to relative
Object Calls ( COM or CORBA ) and those objects will talk to database and on
the way back convert the output data to outcoming XML document - surely you
map to your objects and make DB API calls directly.
about #3, if u combine XSLT and ADO + - it'll be very nice one.
