When to use your own XML Transformer Provider?

As I understand SAP ships standard XML Transformer provider to render XMLs which are in standard format of RSS or BUSDOC. But in case I don't have either of these two format but just a well developed XML file, do I need to write my own custom develop XML transformer provider i.e., do I need custom java code implementing the SAP provider class. OR do I just define my own XSLT and put in the SAP provided SimpleTransormer and register it as transformer service. I find it hard to believe that customer need to write their own code to render any XML format other than those two specified.

Any inputs on this issue will be very helpful. I had gone thru some other threads in this forum but its still not clear.

Thanks,

Tridib

    Hi Tridib,

    You can easily package your own XSL into a PAR and deploy the PAR. The XSL tansformer will then be displayed in the list of transformers in the XML iView.

    You just need to supply the following (no Java coding):

    • XSL

    • portalapp.xml (pretty standard, basically cut and paste from documentation)

    • transformers.xml (information about your XSL: name, file name, etc.)

    You can get more info at http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/e1/98e14110340b7fe10000000a155106/frameset.htm

    Hope this helps.

    Daniel
