   process response xml format

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I have a little tool I've been building that 
allows people to run command line processes 
from the browser(well ie and mozilla so far, 
also have it working in DENG), if the 
process is listed in an xml file as allowed 
and if the browser passes the right password 
obviously (probably too involved to go into 
the whole thing). Anyway when the process is 
done executing I thought it would be nice if 
it had some output that listed what it had 
done, I figure what I want to do is to save 
this information in xml and return it to the 
calling browser etc. when requested.

The thing is that this seems like rather a 
big thing, that the xml if generic enough 
would be hideously complex and probably 
uninformative as well. However if the format 
was dependent on whatever process was run it 
would be pretty diffult to set up any 
framework for handling these process 
responses. I figure then the format should 
have a documentation aspect, that just 
passes back info for a user to read about 
what was done, and a more stringent form for 
passing back computable information. 

it's the more stringent form I'm interested 
in. I was thinking on the one hand that 
there is a relation to wmi (since this is a 
windows project) i.e listing a record of 
what wmi objects were effected by an 

Does anyone know of any formats out there 
that are similar to this, projects were 
people have tried to handle the same 

Sorry if this is unclear but right now I'm 
dealing with a part of the application where 
I'm not 100% sure what is needed, but I have 
a suspicion/feeling that something extra 
would be nice.
