Ethan SteinSubject: Can pass text into CONV file
Author: Ethan Stein
Date: 13 Feb 2012 12:38 AM
I know that one can call a custom XML conversion file using a file as input. So one could go from CSV to XML by providing the input of

doc('converter:CSV?file:///c:/sample/sample_input_data.csv')

Is it possible to instead pass text from an XML node to the CSV conversion file?

In other words, if I have the following XML

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<ROOT>
<CUSTOMER>1,Jack,Smith,California</CUSTOMER>
<CUSTOMER>2,Joe,Blog,Australia</CUSTOMER>
</ROOT>

Is it possible to call a CSV conversion file with each CUSTOMER text? I was hoping to do it within memory but if that's not possible, then perhaps generating a CSV file from this data onto the file system (e.g. serialize-to-url) and then calling the CONV file with this sample file?

I realize one could also bypass the CONV and use string-tokenize to handle it manually, but that might require more code for labeling and managing the individual tokens.

Hi Ethan,

Convert to XML supports "to XML" only, while the built-in CSV converter is bi-directional, see simple tutorial at

Hope this helps
