In some situations when developing with Web Experience Factory (WEF), you may want to quickly create a data provider model without depending on a back end data store. The new XML File Data Service builder just posted on the wiki is a sample builder that can be used for this. With it, a single builder can be used to create a service provider with complete CRUD (create, read, update, delete) access using data from an XML file. It has no external dependencies or configuration requ
As you may know, the SQL Table Create builder provided in the WEF product can also fill a similar role. It can create a new database table with the columns you want and implement a CRUD data provider accessing that table; however, it does depend on a JDBC data source. This new XML File Data Service builder removes any such dependencies.
The builder package includes all the sample source code, so you can enhance or modify it as you wish.
