Reading XML files that are in my webworks folder

I'm developing a WebWorks app for PlayBook.


I have some XML files with some data. I need to read this data using jQuery (or JavaScript).


How can I do that? How can I read a XML file?


I've found some examples that uses AJAX to read file, but I don't think this is the right way.

You should be able to simply do a local AJAX call to the file and then use the responseXML property of the XMLHttpRequest object.


To get to local resources you can use local:///myfile.xml
