Does anybody have a "generalized" method to flatten a hierarchical structure?
In other words, given a XML-typical structure with trees and leaves, how can i generate a old-style-cobol-like flat file using mapping?
H- |_A1_ |_B1 -----> HA1B1 |_B2 -----> HA1B2 |_A2_ HA2B3 |_B3
I've been able to do that using a recursive manipulation of the context (via custom and standard functions), but this seems very dumb because you need to put a function in fron of each field...
Maybe some XSLT-guru knows a better method....
thanks in advance.
