As demonstrated above, we do not need an extensive setup to start seeing the benefits of generating XML documents. The example ASP page simply writes to a given file on the file system. We can enhance it to append XML records for each of the new users after some validation to a file of all users, and even develop an interface that allows us to search the records in the XML file using suitable XPATH expressions. Alternatively, we can write some application logic to do inserts, updates, or deletes to the database. There is a lot of functionality that one can conceive of developing around the above example scripts. These are left as an exercise for the reader.
