Depending on the needs, the old "simple" way of specifying the XSLT and the XML file as part of the request URL still exists. If the Query front end is desired then those Java controllers and views will still be needed. Also the Indicator Profile View type XSLTs would need to be rolled back to the older versions that implemented DHTML for the chart/map HTML graphic image elements. Doing this cuts out a great deal of the system configuration files but also increases navigation complexity, makes it so that artifacting can not be used, and makes it more difficult for search engines to crawl the site.
