Re: Concrete XML usage

castor xml usage
[Didier PH Martin]

Does anyone in this list tried to use XSLT to assemble different XML data
source? I am not talking here of trying to assemble different static
documents but more assembling dynamic XML coming from web services (SOAP or
else), script output, etc...

I have.  I have assembled XML data gotten from a CORBA server and converted
to xml with Castor, then transformed to our desired internal format using
xslt, combined with screen-scraped HTML, combined with computed XML data
generated by our app, and displayed in a browser using xslt, which even
"computed" natural language phrases (by computing the index into a lookup
table and assembling fragments).

I have done some other combination tasks, but this was the most ambitious.

One other interesting task was to get XML data from a database (using Cold
Fusion), and using various XML driver files and xslt stylesheets, to combine
data sets and a basic xml template so as to transform it (with xslt) into a
series of related online questionnaires.  We even created the database table
definitions in SQL from these xml files (using xslt again), so that the
database table designs were synchronized with the actual questionnaires.

When we analyzed the data, we combined data from the database with
hand-authored xml based on past paper records - using xslt - and created svg
graphs for the data, also using xslt.
