Re: Concrete 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... [Tom P] 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. Cheers, Tom P
