Thread: XSLT generation tools

    XSLT generation tools


    As XML web applications become more popular, the need to integrate their data
    into legacy system file formats is essential. We know XSLT can transform
    XML input into many output formats such as XML, HTML, and even ASCII file
    formats. Where are the Tools?

    Many GUI tools are on the market that will generate XSLT documents for transforming
    XML to other XML documents, but what about XML to legacy system ASCII files?
    Iíve researched many XML tool vendors - Cape Clear Software Inc., Data Junction,
    Induslogic, Seagull, IBM, Dasan Technology, and eXcelon Corporation, but
    none of them provide a GUI XSLT generation tool to transform XML into proprietary
    legacy system file formats. Have you? Any assistance would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Re: XSLT generation tools


    Pick up a book on XSLT and program up a solution. XSLT is a programming language.
    If you want to use its full power, you need to learn to program in it.


    It's really not that difficult to write transforms from scratch once you
    know the language. On the other hand, I have never seen a graphical tool
    for programming, oh, C++ that actually worked. I've seen a lot of them claim
    to work, but nothing has ever beaten a good old text editor - not yet, anyway.

    You can use tools to help you write XSLT, but anything that claims to let
    you transform your data without having to know how to program is not telling
    you the whole truth. Be very suspicious.
