Ian ShulerSubject: Some node navigation help please
Author: Ian Shuler

Hi folks...

I keep getting confused when I am navigating an XML doc for either an xsl:template declaration or when using xsl:for-each select="".

For example, I have a document with this structure:
<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/
XMLSchema-instance">
<soapenv:Body>
<getResponse xmlns="">
<result>
<deletedRecords>
<deletedDate>2004-07-07T17:07:20.000Z</deletedDate>
<id>00130000002K9RrAAK</id>
</deletedRecords>
<deletedRecords>
<deletedDate>2004-07-07T17:07:21.000Z</deletedDate>
<id>00130000002K9RsAAK</id>
</deletedRecords>
</result>
</getResponse>
</soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>

In a simple transform, I have been declaring in my stylesheet <xsl:template match-"/"> to apply this to the whole xml doc.

Here is where I keep getting confused. I want to just select the <id> element values write them out to an xml like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<deleteIds>
<xsl:for-each select="result/deletedRecords">
<Id>
<xsl:for-each select="id">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>
</xsl:for-each>
</Id>
</xsl:for-each>
</deleteIds>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

However, my navigation of the nodes is wrong.

What am I missing/forgetting in my navigation of the nodes? And is there a simple way to remember navigation patterns?

TIA, Ian

you first xpath result/deleterecord/id is wrong in the context

it should be:

soapenv:Envelope/soapenv:Body/result/deleterecord/id. you also need to declare the soapenv namespace in your stylesheet.

OK...tried that, still no go...I included the soapenv namespace and did a literal path to the <id> element in my xsl. At that point I should be able to use <xsl:value-of select="." /> to place the <id> element value into the <Id> tags.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<deleteIds>
<xsl:for-each select="soapenv:Envelope/soapenv:Body/getDeletedResponse/result/deletedRecords/id">
<Id>
<xsl:value-of select="."/>
</Id>
</xsl:for-each>
</deleteIds>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

This is the input again:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/
XMLSchema-instance">
<soapenv:Body>
<getDeletedResponse xmlns="urn:foo.soap.bar.com">
<result>
<deletedRecords>
<deletedDate>2004-07-07T17:07:20.000Z</deletedDate>
<id>00130000002K9RrAAK</id>
</deletedRecords>
<deletedRecords>
<deletedDate>2004-07-07T17:07:21.000Z</deletedDate>
<id>00130000002K9RsAAK</id>
</deletedRecords>
</result>
</getDeletedResponse>
</soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>

Thanks again...Ian

you didn't take care of the default namespace in your <getDeletedResponse> element. the right xpath should be:

soapenv:Envelope/soapenv:Body/a:getDeletedResponse/a:result/a:deletedRecords/a:id
and declare 'a' as namespace urn:foo.soap.bar.com in your stylesheet.
