XML Support


RC-WinTrans X8 comes with a ready-made file converter for XML files.  However, since XML files can have a variety of structures, in many cases an additional converter must be realized in order

to support a specific XML file structure.  Essentially, the XML file converter needs to know which parts of a certain XML file are to be translated.  This information is provided to the XML converter via XSL extended stylesheets.  These stylesheets are called XML parsers.  An XML parser points out the elements to be translated in an XML file.


RC-WinTrans X8 processes (reads/writes) XML files using an XSL transformation.  An XSL stylesheet acts as a parser reading a certain XML file format and specifying which data is to be translated.



Obtaining an XML Parser for a Specific XML File

Please contact Schaudin.com if you need an XML parser file to translate your specific XML format file with RC-WinTrans.  You should also send us an example of your XML file(s).


If the XML files needing to be supported (translated) have a simple structure, Schaudin.com will create the necessary XML parser (XSL stylesheet) for free.  XML files with more complex internal structures can be accommodated for a fee to be determined by the time and effort required for its realization.




Examples to use in creating your own XML parser (XSL stylesheet) to translate an XML file can be found in the RC-WinTrans X8 Developer Help (Help file: "X8DeveloperHelp.htm").
