&nbsp;<BR>Hi guys...<BR> I was jus thinking on these issues !<BR>1. For a database app, will it be better to use session vars to maintain tables at the client or is it advisable to use XML at client ?<BR>&#060;My Preference is always XML based work cos of the flexibility it offers for handling data at the client side &#062;<BR><BR>2. Will it better to place the database related funcs / business logic in the middle tier or the client side ??<BR>&#060;Since I strongly support XML based work.. I prefer the business logic to just fetch/replace data from the server . All data handling could be done at the client side scripts / codes &#062;<BR><BR><BR>Post ur opinions..<BR><BR>Happy Programming !<BR><BR>Sri !
