In the first part of this article, I introduced you to patTemplate and patXMLRenderer, and showed you how you could use them to separate the content, layout and business logic of a site. This technique is particularly valuable when developing content-heavy sites that rely on XML data sources - in the previous tutorial, I showed you a few examples of how it could be used, together with a real-world example.
In this second part, I'll discuss some of the things hidden under the patXMLRenderer hood, including how to incorporate XML attribute values in your templates, how to retrieve and calculate attribute values dynamically, how to cache pages for faster response times, how to create logs of user activity, referrers and totals, how to generate statistical usage reports and much, much more. So come on in - things are only gonna get more interesting!
