RE: using different xsl based on xml
Thanks for the reply. There is one thing that I am worrying a lot. If the number of my customer growing I have to mess with same XSL again and again to meet new element. It will end up with very complicated xsl that hard to maintain. Shall I worry about this? -John -----Original Message----- From: owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Robert Seber Sent: Wednesday, May 02, 2001 3:26 AM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: using different xsl based on xml You could have a single generic stylesheet with lots of sub templates. You could then perform the transformation and the XSL will match to the elements available in the incoming XML e.g. 1) <xsl:template match="/root"> .... 2) <xsl:template match="/data"> .... 1 would match a root element called "root" and 2 would match a root element called "data". Each one could treat the XML differently. The precise solution depends on the XML you're receiving. If they share the same name for elements you may need to increase the complexity of the 'select's and 'match'es. > -----Original Message----- > From: John Wang [mailto:jwang@xxxxxxxxxxx] > Sent: Tuesday, May 01, 2001 8:25 PM > To: list > Subject: using different xsl based on xml > > > Hello, All > > I got different xml data from different customers.
