Subject XPath queries and HTTP
Date Mon, 10 Mar 2003 20:56:41 GMT


Am I right in deducing that the HTTP 0.8 helper doesn't deal with XPath 
queries?  HTTPHandler.java (lines 134-9) deals with the DOCUMENT case by 
calling map.getDocument().  It seems unlikely that this method contains 
hidden abilities to cope with an XPath argument ...

If this is the case, I would be interested in helping to add this 
capability. (Newbie alert: I normally program in Delphi!)  Would it be a 
case of adapting the XPathQuery code so that it returns its results to 
the HTTP response object, rather than sending the results to the 
standard output?  Is this a sensible thing to be doing at all?
