View Full Version : Ajax call response

09-03-2007, 09:58 PM
Use the Ajax to make the call to the server side.

In the front end/browser, I send the request.

On the server side, there could be two ways to return a xml string:

But first, create the Document

factory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
builder = factory.newDocumentBuilder();
Document doc = builder.newDocument();

Element tree = doc.createElement("tree");

#1) convert doc to a xml String
ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
TransformerFactory tf = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
Transformer t = tf.newTransformer();
t.transform(new DOMSource(doc),new StreamResult(baos));
String xmlString = new String(baos.toByteArray(), "utf8");

//send the xmlString back to the front end

#2)send back the doc, instead
TransformerFactory tf = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
Transformer t = tf.newTransformer();
t.transform(new DOMSource(doc), new StreamResult(response.getOutputStream()));

My questions are:

1)What is the difference between the #1) and #2)?
2)Under what circumstance should use the one not the other (between #1 and #2)?
3)Should I use the responseXML to receive the response from #1) and #2)?

Thanks Scott

Isn't that Java syntax? This is a Javascript fourm.
