I am looking for great ideas for the best way to extract xml nodes from a complete xml-file and save each to a given path in the filesystem, with filename incremented for each file... file1,2,3,4.
I have a process in workbench that takes an xml file as input (complete XML shown below). In the complete solution I will have an unknown number of child nodes to save.
Complete XML file with two records. Is in a process variable "xmlComplete" - type=xml:
Want to save each child record (<indexRec>) to the filesystem. Lets say to C:\temp\records\file1.xml (..2.xml etc) and with content like this.
What kind of solution would you advice?? An execute script with loop or a loop of setValue steps??
Hope for great input. feel free to ask for more info if needed, Thanks
Your requirement is much easy to implement with simple activities such as SetValue, WriteXML etc.
I prefer not to use Execute Script activity for this simple logic.
You need to create a loop in your process on workbench. First count nodes and set it to an integer variable.
/process_data/@number = count(/process_data/xmlComplete/archiveIndexRecords/indexRec)
Then you need to get first node's data to write to disk.
/process_data/FirstNode = /process_data/xmlComplete/archiveIndexRecords/indexRec[number(/process_data/@i)] (i is another integer variable which is 1 as default. )
When you get first node's data set it to a document variable and write down to disk. Then add 1 to i variable and control it with number (count of nodes) variable. Decide for next record or not.
You can find an example how to create loops in workbench link below.
