Alai ThiréSubject: Converting tree structure to html (Report)
Author: Alai Thiré
Date: 04 Jan 2008 05:05 PM
Hello I'm quiet new to Stylus but have the following XML structure

<NODE0>
<NODE01>
..... elements
<NODE01/>
<NODE001>
....
<NODE001/>
<NODE02>
....
<NODE02/>
<NODE0/>

I would like to output it in html and fo but I would like to laintain the hierarchical structure of the nodes in the document.

Can You give me some ideas ?
I've attactched a sample ... if some guru might have a moment

Most gratefull
Alain

Hi Alain,
I'm not sure what you means by "maintain the structure" of the document. Does the attached report help you start desigining?

In fact, after quiet some years in consulting, we decided to develop a software allowing a business user to generate a data warehouse requirements.

What you have is test output data and we would like to present this data into a browser of FO by measn of a XSL transformer call in java.

My problem is that the logic to arrive at metrics is represented by the concept of a <NODE> , each node has a unique id (which we put in an attribute. BUT , and here I get stuck, a nodes can be composed of any of dependent nodes. You get a tree structure with a variable depth.

Traditionally 'a model' can have a structure
ID1 vision : txxxxxt
--ID11 mission : txxxxxxt
----ID111 Domain 1 : txxxxt
------ID1111 Metric

But another model can have more nodes and a larger depth
ID1 MISSION : txxxxx
--ID11 DOMAIn : "POLUTION"
-----ID111 REF : Article on polution
-----ID112 METRIC : Evolution of CO2 over time
--ID12 DOMAIn : " HEALTH"
-----ID111 DOMAIN : "CANCER"
-------ID1111 REF : Article on cancer
-------ID1112 METRIC : Cancer per type and per regio
-----ID112 DOMAIN : "HART AND BLOOD DISEASES"
-------ID11111 : DOMAIN : "HART ATTACK"
---------ID111111 REF :
---------ID111112 METRIC : Hart attacks per period

etc (I 'v used '-' to represent blanks to show the desired layout. If I post the message the spaces are removed hence it's obvious that is is not clear what I mean by hierarchical structure of the document'

The first model has only three levels , the second five
Nevertheless I would like to have only one XSL to do the transform
Note that the XMl is only a test file

The output I got from your report only shows the 'types' ?
Sorry but I'm pretty new to Stylus and XSL

Thanks in advance
Alain

Hi Alain,
XML Report allows to visually design a hierarchy of nested tables, but the number of nested nodes must be known at design time. If your XML has a variable number of levels you should use Report to design the XSL-FO fragment that defines the layout of just one node, extract the relevant FO code and place it inside a <xsl:template match="NODE"> and then invoke it recursively.

Have a look at the attached sample XSLT.

Hope this helps,
Alberto
