Subject:Source XML code updates in mapper Author:stephan Mattelaer Date:28 Oct 2007 06:08 PM
I am just starting out with stylus studio and the mapper.
I have read all the online help for using the mapper, but there is one item I cannot seen to see the answer to.
Assume that I have an XML file as the input and an XML file as the output and have pretty much done all the mapping I need to do in the mapper.
If my input xml file that I used in the mapper has now changed for whatever reason, do I have to start all over again with the mapper using the now changed input xml file, or is there a way to update the source xml input file and just redo the mappings for the changed parts of this ?

We build the map dynamically from the XSLT or XQuery that we see.
So if the input XML changes in ways that invalidate some of the
map you've drawn, those lines will simply disappear, and you can
update the map with the new rules.
They will remain in the code until you manually remove them, so that
none of your logic disappears before you have a chance to inspect it
though - and that is by design.
