Hi Andrea,

Nice work on this! I've committed your patch at r8971. One thing I  
noticed was that the infusion external wasn't set up correctly,  
causing paths not to work, so I also corrected this.

Some further feedback:

* I noticed that this code only works from a Web server, even in  
standalone mode. This is because Joan is using jQuery's $.get()  
convenience method, which doesn't allow you to specify a content type  
for the data returned. When loaded off the file system, the XML  
document is returned as a string, not a real jQuery instance. Using  
$.ajax() and setting the dataType option should do the trick.

* Once you've got it working straight off the file system, you can  
probably remove the explicit standaloneMode option and just check  
window.location.protocol to see if it's "file:"

* Joan has some duplicate code to make Ajax calls to the server, which  
required you to write the same boilerplate checks for the  
standaloneMode option in duplicate as well. Perhaps you can factor  
these out so they use the same underlying function instead?	

Other than that, I think this is shaping up pretty nicely. We've still  
got a blocking issue before we can actually start using this  
component: the work Michelle was doing to generalize Kettle so that it  
can be used for non-Engage code. Here's the JIRA ticket she was  
working against:


Perhaps she can update us on the status of this--I think she had to  
set it aside to work on more immediate concerns, but it may be close  
to done.
