XML Parser Nodes

XML Parser nodes convert text input to an XML document.

Figure 429. Example XML Parser Node Implementation

Input Port

XML Parser nodes have a single input port that you use to specify the text to be converted to XML. You can specify a default value, or the value can be dynamic (the output from another node in the XML pipeline, for example).

Output Ports

XML Parser nodes have a single output port, used to specify what to do with the result of the transformation. You can

  • Use the Copy to URL property to write the output to a file system
  • Pipe the output to another node (like Validate, for example)
  • Or both

An output must be specified in order for the node to be processed.
