DBWalker Output Overview


The DBWalker's internal libraries produce XML output. This is transformed into HTML via a XSL stylesheet, which is changeable on a per-configuration basis. When a request is received that ends in .xml, DBWalker will return an XML document with a reference to an XSL stylesheet on the DBWalker server (which modern browsers will automatically fetch and apply).

However, if a request is received with the extension .html, DBWalker will apply the stylesheet server-side before the client ever sees it, and hand the resulting HTML to the client. This is useful for clients that do not apply XSL transformations to XML documents (like the Search Appliance).
