RE: XML "include"?

Pat, xlink syntax looks like, as you probably already know:

<xl:link xl:href="http://www.foobar.com/mydoc.xml" xl:type="simple"
xl:show="embed" xl:actuate="onload"/>

where a simple traversal embeds the resource mydoc.xml upon loading the
document containing the link, where embedding has the effect of an HTML IMG
element embedding a JPEG (fr'instance) when an application renders the

for show and actuate attribute behaviors see:

of course this requires an application (maybe yours!) to understand,
traverse, and actuate the link, but since your resource is a servlet, and
not a document resource, you need to extend your framework beyond ordinary
xml syntax, I think...

anyone else know how to schlurp a Java resource to fit Pat's needs?

No, that wouldn't because the external is going to be a servlet like so:


That way whatever that page bring up (which will be a small chunk of XML),
it would be just as if that text were inserted in the other XML file. Is
this possible? Xlink?
