Subject Re: ESQL update and select statements in the same map:match problem
Date Thu, 26 Feb 2004 16:41:16 GMT

You can create an XSP action, which is much easier than writing it in java,
and you can still use ESQL.

Add this namespace to your action:  xmlns:action=

Here's the sitemap entry:
<map:act type="serverpages" src="path-to-your-xsp.xml"/>

thnx for the hint
