I am quite new to jdom and xml. However, I have managed to get my classes
to read and write xml files...
I would like to write a servlet based application that is an appointment
scheduler. It will have lots and lots of appointment objects containing
java date objects and other relevant data about the appointment.
I could implement this using a database to hold the data, but I thought I
might try storing it in an XML file. Is there anything to prevent me from
having an xml file with, say, thousands of elements in it? Will it parse
relatively quickly? Should I break them up, say a month element holding
all the appointments for that month, or just stream them all in together?
I would appreciate any advice or thoughts anyone has to give...
