RE: Correcting an XML email@example.com
The identity transform is the answer here, I'm curious if anyone could suggest a question or topic or something such that I can have a page in the faq where use cases for the identity tranform is the answer. Change a fraction of an input document, copy the rest. Generate a stylesheet with templates for every unique element. .. Others? TIA, DaveP -----Original Message----- From: walter.crockett A software application I use produces XML documents with inaccurate information. I need to change a few values within the document and output the whole corrected document as XML. Two kinds of changes are necessary, both in nearly the same place in the document structure: 1. For each /AttributeProps/Datatype element with a value of DATE, I need to change DATE to TIMESTAMP. 2. For each /AttributeProps/Order element, I need to take whatever the value of Order is and then use that value to replace the value of /AttributeProps/PhysicalOrder. So if Order has the value 1, PhysicalOrder must have the value 1 also. (This may already be true in many cases, but I imagine there's no sense in testing that they're equivalent. I would be just as easy to overwrite the value of PhysicalOrder every time, wouldn't it?) So, basically, I need to change two types of things and then copy over the entire XML document with the changes in it. This would seem very simple, but I'm at a loss.
