Re: XSTL stylesheet workarounds for exceptions


im new  XML and After reading all the various posts im Extremely Confused. My Company is requesting that i export Data from the DB into xml for Data transfer services. I see alot of Different methods,Elements,Members ect... and Sub queries on Data contained within XML schema. Im in need of exporting data from MsSQL for Plant Production Declarations to our SAP systems. It looks like XML is a whole lot of work Versus just straight Transactions to the source. What is the real Purpose of XML?
Thanks for your Help

XSTL stylesheet workarounds for exceptions





Hi All,

 

I am at a stage of fine-tuning an existing stylesheet that has been worked on recently and would like include some workarounds to accommodate exceptional data in the following 2 areas:

 

( i ) Get the content of sub-elements <a> as follows:

<p>

  <strong>Hobbies:</strong>

  <a shape="rect" href="http://www.hobbies.com/fishing title="Shark Hunting">fishing</a>

  <a shape="rect" href="http://www.hobbies.com/hunting title="Animal">rabbit</a>

(Out-door adventures)

</p>

 

Intended output

<hobbies> fishing<hobbies>

<hobbies> rabbit<hobbies>

 

In this case, it is both fishing, rabbit that I am after. However, I still couldn’t get it working despite having tried numerous of the following stylesheet approaches:

 

<xsl:template match="/">

  <employee>

    <xsl:apply-templates select="//ns:p"/>

  </employee>

</xsl:template>

 

( A ) <xsl:template match="ns:p[ns:strong='Hobbies:']">

         <xsl:copy-of              

           <hobbies>select="ns:a"/></hobbies>

       </xsl:template>

               or

( B ) <xsl:template match="ns:p[ns:strong='Hobbies:']">

         <xsl:for-each select="ns:a/text()[normalize-space() != '']">

           <hobbies><xsl:value-of select="normalize-space()"/></hobbies>

         </xsl:for-each>

       </xsl:template>

               or

( C ) <xsl:template match="ns:p[ns:strong='Hobbies:']">

         <xsl:for-each select=".//ns:a/text()[normalize-space() != '']">

           <hobbies><xsl:value-of select="normalize-space()"/></hobbies>

         </xsl:for-each>

       </xsl:template>

              or

( D ) <xsl:template match="ns:p[ns:strong='Hobbies:']">

         <xsl:for-each select="ns:p/ns:a/text()[normalize-space() != '']">

           <hobbies><xsl:value-of select="normalize-space()"/></hobbies>

         </xsl:for-each>

       </xsl:template>

               or

( E ) <xsl:template match="ns:p[ns:strong='Hobbies:']">

         <xsl:for-each select="../ns:a//text()[normalize-space() != '']">

           <hobbies><xsl:value-of select="normalize-space()"/></hobbies>

         </xsl:for-each>

       </xsl:template>

               or

( F ) <xsl:template match="ns:p[ns:strong='Hobbies:']">

         <xsl:for-each select="ns:a">

          <xsl:for-each select="text()[normalize-space() != '']">"

            <hobbies><xsl:value-of select="normalize-space()"/></hobbies>

          </xsl:for-each>

        </xsl:for-each>

     </xsl:template>

               or

( G ) <xsl:template match="ns:p[ns:strong='Hobbies:']">

          <xsl:for-each select=".//ns:a">

            <xsl:for-each select="text()[normalize-space() != '']">"

              <hobbies><xsl:value-of select="normalize-space()"/></hobbies>

            </xsl:for-each>

          </xsl:for-each>

        </xsl:template>

 

( ii ) I also like to add a default generic value for any missing element. Say if there are no

<p><strong>Hobbies:</strong></p> element in such document, yet I still would like to generate a

null element such as <hobbies>Unknown</hobbies>. The intended stylesheet should look

like the following but again couldn’t get it working still:

 

<xsl:template match="/">

  <employee>

    <xsl:apply-templates select="//ns:p"/>

  </employee>

</xsl:template>

 

<xsl: choose>

  <xsl: when test="ns:p[ns:strong='Hobbies:']">

    <xsl:template match="ns:p[ns:strong='Hobbies:']">

      <xsl:for-each select="text()[normalize-space() != '']">

        <hobbies><xsl:value-of select="normalize-space()"/></hobbies>

      </xsl:for-each>

    </xsl:template>

  </xsl:when>

<xsl:otherwise>

  <hobbies>Unknown</hobbies>

</xsl:otherwise>

</xsl: choose>

 

I have run out of ideas and would be very much appreciated if anyone could give me some suggestion on how to tackle this task.

Jack
