Differences to the Classic Taconite Parser

The Taconite jQuery plugin is a "close but not quite" drop in replacement for the existing Taconite parser. If you're new to Taconite you can safely skip this section.

Very briefly (you'll see more examples later), this is is how the Taconite jQuery plugin differs from the classic Taconite parser. The response XML formats are nearly identical, save for the following differences:

  • Actions can use a "selector" attribute instead of contextNodeID to specify the context nodes. The contextNodeID attribute is still supported. The selector attribute's value can be any valid jQuery selector string.
  • The content of all actions must be wrapped in a CDATA section.
  • The taconite-execute-javascript action needn not have the JavaScript enclosed in a <script type="text/javascript"> tag.
