Create XML file

Hi experts

For an interface,we need to create an XML file and save it locally. My question is: which will be the best way for the XML creation? Using xlst_tool or doing completely the file by hand?

Could you please help me?

Thanks in advance!

    Personally I always use simple transformations or xsl based transformations. Creating an XML by hand is something I only had to resort to in a few special cases. (Dynamic format of XML file, but even in these cases it was not completely impossible to do it with transformations)

    Hello experts,

    Thanks a lot for your support! I'm completely new working with xslt_tool, so I'm a bit lost... I've created all the structures and the final structures. When I check it in sourceCode tab, it seems to be good. But now I'm executing the program and it returns the following message "Invalid XML source". Should I need to create the report now? and how can I use this for the XML grneration? Thanks!!!

    • Please show your code.

      Create the transformation with STRANS (XSLT_TOOL is the old name, I don't recommend it because it's misleading and incite people to choose XSLT instead of Simple Transformation which is less powerful but much faster). Call it with CALL TRANSFORMATION.
