Tridion's uses tcdl as a "technology-neutral" (markup) language to manage Content Delivery features such as:
I understand this means we can request DCPs using .NET, Java, or the CD Web service and get things like DCPs and dynamic links correctly resolved at request time.
Does the syntax or format matter for REL when Content Delivery returns its response? Can REL handle XML (or even text) based DCPs?
I'd guess that over the CD Web Service, the format doesn't matter but .NET requires ASCX and Java needs JSP (as set in a Template's Output Format)?
