insert_child with same name

Hello XML-on-Abaps

Keywords: if_ixml, XML, node

Could somebody please explain, how to insert more than one children with the same name to a node.

When I'm iterating through a collection (node_collection), I collect some insert points for my new children nodes.

As I read the documentation, that's not possible with append_child. This command overwrites an existing node if there's any.

So I use node->insert_child( ).

-to insert: node outcode

-position of other node on same level

call method getnode->insert_child


new_child = outcode

ref_child = nodelastchild


rval = l_result.

if l_result <> 0.

raise xml_conversion_failed.


or graphically I want that:



<Person> Node with subnode

<Person> Node with subnode



what should I use? another method? or is that not possible?

cheers & thanks,

    Some times later I found my solution:

    *clonenode nodelastchild is last child

    if nam eq 'Person'.

    clonenode = nodelastchild->clone( depth = -1 ).

    nam = clonenode->get_name( ).

    getnode->insert_child( new_child = clonenode

    ref_child = nodelastchild ).
