Chapter 3 Converting Non-XML Files to XML
Stylus Studio uses DataDirectXML Converters to convert incoming streams of data from native formats to outgoing streams of XML, and vice-versa. XML Converters support standard file formats, including EDI, CSV, binary, and many others. XML Converters also support the conversion of custom or proprietary formats that you specify using a custom XML conversion definition.
This chapter describes how to use DataDirect XML Converters to convert standard and proprietary files to XML in Stylus Studio, how to create your own custom XML conversion definitions, and how to use files you convert on-the-fly elsewhere in Stylus Studio - as a source for XQuery and XSLT design, for example.
You can read about other video demonstrations for the custom XML conversion definition module here: http://www.stylusstudio.com/learn_convert_to_xml.html#converttoxml.
