i have a website w/ a normalized mysql DB and php code to get it all running. this includes data display and, in some cases, data update. i'd like to re-do the website, starting only with the DB and its data. further, i'd like to find some technology which would read the DB structure and facilitate XML communication w/ the mysql server. iow, from an MVC perspective, i want this tool (or what it produces) to be the model -- with persistence being handled by my existing DB -- while i go off and write views and controllers in some other XML-compatible technology. so: what tools/technologies should i be looking at? ideally, i'd like to code as little as possible (since i'll have my hands full w/ the other stuff). this must run on a LAMP server against mysql 4.1.21.
