/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Instead of using the below two statements

lib.getBook("Dummy XML");
alert(lib.getAuthors()); // output John Smith, Jack Simpson

it works fine to produce the above output. but i want to produce the abouve output using nested methods.

i want to use a single statement alert(lib.getBook("Dummy XML").getAuthors()); to produce the same output ( // output John Smith, Jack Simpson)

Please help me on how to call a method in a method.

Thanks
