XSL Transformation (Job Entry)


XSLT is short for Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations, for more information on this, look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XSLT

XSL Transformation job entry is designed to transform (by applying XSL document ) XML documents into other documents (XML or other format, such as HTML or plain text).

The original document is not changed; rather, a new document is created based on the content of the XML file.

See also the corresponding step: XSL Transformation




Name of the job entry

The name of the job entry. This name has to be unique in a single job. A job entry can be placed several times on the canvas, however it will be the same job entry.

Get filenames from previous result

When this option is checked, the XML File name, XSL File name and Output File name are read from the previous result set. When multilpe rows exists, it will loop. At this time XML File name is the first field in the result set, XSL File name the second fields and Output File name the third field. (See also PDI-6193)

XML File name

The full name of the source XML file

XSL File name

The full name of the XSL file

Output File name

The full name of the created document (result of XSL transformation)
