   Re: [xml-dev] one XML Format to other XML Format using XSLT

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I am new to XML and in process of converting one XML format to another XML
format using XSLT. My conversion looks something as below (transforming
A.xml to B.xml)


<Employee SBU=23>
   <Name> A </Name>
   <ID> 1 </ID>
   <Team> XYZ </Team


<Employee ID="1" Team="XYZ">
   <Name> A </Name>

Need help to build an xsl file for this conversion ?



You have a couple of errors in A.xml.

Assuming those are corrected then the following stylesheet gives you the output that you described.

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" encoding="UTF-8" />
<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:apply-templates select="Employee" />

<xsl:template match="Employee">
  <xsl:attribute name="ID">
   <xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(ID)" />
  <xsl:attribute name="Team">
   <xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(Team)" />
  <xsl:copy-of select="Name" />


If you didn't intend the spaces in the value of the <Team> and <ID> elements you won't need the normalize-space() function in the stylesheet.

XSLT questions are normally best asked on the XSL-List.
