This is an excellent use case for DB2 pureXML!!! With the Web 2.0 Starter Toolkit for IBM DB2, in minutes you can:
- Publish ATOM feeds from pureXML databases
- Build Web Services via Point and Click
- Monitor the activity in your database via AJAX
While many of you are coders on site, this can save a fair bit of time/efforts producing ATOM Feeds and REST services for either Mash-ups or Ajax Applications from the database perspective. If you are new to PHP and DB2, it is a decent starter as are the samples with Zend Core for IBM.
