Using Adapters in Stylus Studio

You can use adapters to open any file as XML anywhere in Stylus Studio. For example, you might want to use a text file ( .txt) as the source document for XQuery Mapper. When you open a file using an adapter, the adapter engine converts that file to XML on-the-fly, using the settings defined in the adapter you select.

You can also use the Stylus Studio Java API to invoke an adapter programmatically to convert any file using the adapter you specify. See Invoking an Adapter Programmatically for more information on this topic.
