On the server side you can do whatever you want, and standards matter a 
whole lot less.  XML or JSON connectors can let you talk to the outside 

Yes, there's still some advantage in standardized tools, communication, 
and (perhaps most of all) their advantage for hiring, but the kinds of 
constraints that the browser environment creates just don't exist on the 
server side.

The seriously data-intensive server folks I know generally have no 
interest in XML or JSON except maybe as input and reporting formats. 
They're off in the wilds of NoSQL, graph databases, or just plain crazy 
SQL.  There's a tiny core of people with vast quantities of documents 
who do care about these things on the server, but it's still a specialty
