Migrating XML Forms Documents

Hi All,

Using xml forms we have created a custom news application for our company.

What I need to do is now migrate all the old news items we have into EP6, based on this news app.

I have created xml documents based on the xsl stylesheet and schema provided in the xml project.

But I have two issues.

How to generate the random document Id that the portal creates when you create a new news Item from the create menu.

When I upload my old news xml files in to KM, it fails to recognise or apply the news form to this file. So when I click the file all I see is xml instead on transformed news item based on my xml forms project.

Is there a better way to convert the existing data into xml forms document.

    The problem is, even when I create my news item using the xsl template, it is not recognised as an forms based publishing item. there is a system property "resource type" that needs to be set to the corresponding xml forms project for the KM to recognise the file and render it. Since i cannot populate that property when i manually create the file, it now only opens as an xml document rather than the xml form item.
