Our XMLServlet takes the latter (agnostic, welcome-everywhere) approach.

XMLServlet v4.6 available for no-charge 60-day evaluation August 1 through
August 30 at ceriumworks.com.

XMLServlet queries or updates any JDBC database.  Built-in connection pool
and caching.

Requires JavaScript and SQL skills, but no Java compilation.

Splices HTML (or XML) clips into a page, populating each clip via its own
SQL call.  Populate database from page, or page from database.

Keeps both HTML and SQL outside of servlet, and SQL outside of HTML.

Programmers with light Java and JDBC skills can extend XMLServlet by
overriding any of a handful of methods.  Add logging, security checking,

Sample extensions included:

XSLServlet: translate your XML to HTML before it goes to the browser

TagServlet: write XML-tagged results from your SQL calls

XMLCookieServlet: set header information (such as cookie) before sending
newly-assembled page; for example, as a Log In or Sign Up servlet

XMLMail: send page to both browser and eMail server

For testing, a "Preview" version of each runs without a web server or
servlet engine, and with or without a database connection.

Also includes:

XMLOutline: give your XML editor a DTD from any wordprocessor outline;  or
the reverse: translate your DTD into an outline for XMLdb.

XMLdb: define database tables to match your XML
