    Most Efficient Design Question

    AwesomeDigital Level 1
      I am looking into building a Flex application for my Church. They have a tape/CD library of sermons over the past 15 years.

      The data is in a database, but for my first version I will be generating XML files to use as the data source.

      I would like to have several different view states where they could look at the data differently

      e.g.
      View by speaker
      View by book/chapter of the Bible
      View by date

      With a tree control for navigation

      e.g
      Genesis
      1
      2
      3…
      Exodus
      Leviticus



      So, my question is:

      Is it better to generate a different XML file for each of the different trees I want to build, or load all of the data in one XML file and let flex split up the data into the different pieces.

      Thanks
