XML Publisher Data Sources Panel


XML Publisher is available only in Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite.

You use the data sources panel to identify the sources (relational tables and XML documents, for example) whose data you want to include in your finished report. You select the data you want in your report by dragging the nodes that represent the data from the data sources panel and dropping them on the XML Publisher canvas.


The buttons on the data sources panel let you add and remove data sources, and choose the data source you want to use as the default.

If the document you have selected as a source uses a namespace prefix, Stylus Studio displays the prefix and the URI at the bottom of the data sources panel. You can change the value in the Namespace field and use the renamed prefix in the XPath expressions you define in the Properties window.
