  • Create XML file from ABAP with SOAP Details

    Hi,
    I am new to XML and I am not familiar with JAVA or Web Service. I have searched in SDN and googled for a sample program for creating XML document from ABAP with SOAP details. Unfortunately I couldn't find anything.
    I have a requirement for creating an XML file from ABAP with SOAP details. I have the data in the internal table. There is a Schema which the client provided and the file generated from SAP should be validating against that Schema. Schema contains SOAP details like Envelope, Header & Body.
    My question is can I generate the XML file using CALL TRANSFORMATION in SAP with the SOAP details?
    I have tried to create Transformation (Transaction XSLT_TOOL) in SAP with below code. Also in CALL transformation I am not able to change the encoding to UTF-8. It's always show UTF-16.
    <xsl:transform xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:sap="http://www.sap.com/sapxsl" version="1.0">
      <xsl:template match="/">
        <SOAP:Envelope xmlns:SOAP="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
          <SOAP:Header>
            <CUNS:HeaderInfo>
              <CUNS:InterfaceTypeId>10006</InterfaceTypeId>
              <CUNS:BusinessPartnerID>11223344</BusinessPartnerID>
              <CUNS:SchemaVersion>1.0</SchemaVersion>
              <CUNS:DateTime>sy-datum</DateTime>
            </CUNS:HeaderInfo>
          </SOAP:Header>
          <SOAP:Body>
            <xsl:copy-of select="*"/>
          </SOAP:Body>
        </SOAP:Envelope>
      </xsl:template>
    </xsl:transform>
    In ABAP program, I have written below code for calling above Transformation.
      call transformation ('Z_ID')
           source tab = im_t_output[]
           result xml xml_out.
      call function 'SCMS_STRING_TO_FTEXT'
        exporting
          text      = xml_out
        tables
          ftext_tab = ex_t_xml_data.
    Please help me how to generate XML file with SOAP details from ABAP. If anybody have a sample program, please share with me.
    Is there any easy way to create the XML file in CALL Transformation. Please help.
    Thanks

    Try ABAP forum, as it seems not to be PI related.

  • Creating an xml file from recordset

    Hi...
    XML newbie here - so.
    Is it possible to create and xml file from a recordset?
    I need to create a datafeed of our e-commerce products.
    Also, some of the db data contains HTML Code (product
    description field),
    how will this effect the xml file?
    Another problem is that my xml file needs to contain url's
    for the products
    and product images. My ASP pages contain these URL in hard
    code and then
    pull the actual file names from the db
    Hope that makes some sense
    Thanks for any help
    Andy

    Hi David
    Thanks for your help.
    I think it will have to be option 1 as i am using Access DB.
    I don't know how to go about it but will serach good old
    Google.
    Here is my recordset below, that pulls the required data from
    Access.
    The product and product image URL's need to be in the xml
    file but only the
    product image name and product id are in the database, e.g
    image name
    (imagename.jpg) productid (21)
    The actual URL's are hardcoded in my ASP pages, e.g <img
    src="products/medium/<%=(RSDetails.Fields.Item("Image").Value)%>"
    Not sure if this makes things any clearer :-|
    Thanks Again

  • How to modify an existing xml file from java code.

    Hi
    I have worked on creating a new xml file from java code using xmlbeans.But if i try to modify an already existing file using java code I am unable to get errorfree xmlfile.
    For example if xml file(studlist.xml) is as below:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <StudentList xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="D:\kchaitanya\xmlprac1\abc\Studlist.xsd">
         <Student>
              <Name>ram</Name>
              <Age>27</Age>
         </Student>
    <Student>
              <Name>sham</Name>
              <Age>26</Age>
         </Student>
    </StudentList>
    Now suppose i have set name to victor using student.setName,
    and set age to 20 using setAge from javacode,
    the new xml file is as follows:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <StudentList xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="D:\kchaitanya\xmlprac1\abc\Studlist.xsd">
         <Student>
              <Name>ram</Name>
              <Age>27</Age>
         </Student>
    <Student>
              <Name>sham</Name>
              <Age>26</Age>
         </Student>
    </StudentList>
    <Student>
              <Name>victor</Name>
              <Age>20</Age>
         </Student>
    As observed this is not a valid xml file.But how can i modify without any errors?

    I know it's an old post, but I found this while doing a google search for something else, and don't like to leave it un-aswered
    Just in case anyone has a similar problem... In this case the new elements have been appended outside of the root element
    What you need to do is first get the root element and then append the new children to that, there are several ways of getting the root element, which depend on what you want to do with the elements you get back here's a simple (incomplete) way.
    // gets the root element of the specified file (code not shown)
    Element rootElement= new SAXReader().read(file).getRootElement();Then just append the new elements as below (this is non-generic code and would need to be modified for your situation)
    // write a new student element
    Element student = document.createElement("Student");  // creates the new student
    rootElement.appendChild(student); // ***appends it to the root element***
    Element name = document.createElement("Name"); // creates the name element
    name.appendChild(document.createTextNode("Fred")); // adds the name text to the name element
    student.appendChild(name); // appends the name to the student
    Element age= document.createElement("Age"); // creates the age element
    age.appendChild(document.createTextNode("26")); // adds the age text to the age element
    student.appendChild(age); // appends the name to the studentThen flush ya buffers or whatever and write the file

    Let us assume you have all the data from the jsp form in an java bean object..
    Now you want a xml file. This can be acheived in 2 ways
    1. Write it into a file using java.io classes. Say you have a class with name
    write("<name>"+obj.getName+</name>);
    bingo you have a flat file with the xml
    2. Use data binding to do the trick
    will recommend JiBx and Castor for the 2nd option

  • Creating an xml file from a playlist - message for iTunes staff

    When I created an xml file from a playlist I noticed that in the xml file the track name was merged with the artist name in this manner "I want you - Bob Dylan".
    That was hardly a problem as I could easily correct this in the FileMaker Pro environment.
    But subsequently I found out, that within iTunes the track name was similarly changed to the same format. Apparently this happened when iTunes created the xml file and inadvertently also changed the track name within iTunes.
    It can easily be corrected by entering File/Info, but I had over 10.000 songs in that list and it will take a lot of time. I have to do this, as I created earlier for each song a file path in FileMaker Pro, which are unrecognizable now.
    Could you please correct the xml file creating procedure?

    I must confess that I can't reproduce this result myself anymore.
    I created the xml file in iTunes via File/Library/Export Playlist/xml structure (I translate the Dutch terms loosely) and subsequently I imported the xml file into a Filemaker Pro via File/Import/xml.
    The xsl style sheet looks ok.
    It looks like a freak of nature.
    Still I have the evidence in my iTunes playlist, where I have another 9000 clicks to go to repair the damage.
    Let's forget about it, until it happens again.
    Thanks for your time.

  • Is there anyway to create a xml file from a list so that xml file is available like an RSS.xml

    Hello
    My objective is to have a xml file created from a list for anonymous access.  The SharePoint RSS feed is a .aspx file not xml, as shown below: 
    _layouts/listfeed.aspx?List=21c2cdaa%2D52f3%2D4057%2Db674%2D45e63ba77e31&View=535eb328%2Db5fb%2D45c5%2D8fe8%2Da130e92afc41
    Also, is there a way to do this so that the xml content has current data like the list.
    Thank you for any insight and direction.

    Hi,
    According to your post, my understanding is that you wanted to create a xml file from a SharePoint list.
    To generate a XML file, we can use the SharePoint Object Model or PowerShell to achieve it.
    Generate a hierarchical XML file from SharePoint list using Client Object Model.

    One instruction.  But you do it from the dataset, not the DataGridView
    Me.DataSet1.WriteXml(FILENAME)
    There is a WriteXML method for a DataTable but it gives errors.  Since you dataset has two tables save bot into the same xml file.

  • How do I create individual xml files from the parsed data output of a xml file?

    I have written a program (DOM Parser) that parses data from a XMl File. I would like to create an individual file with the corresponding name for each set of data parsed from the xml document.

  • Issue in Creation of XML file from ABAP data

    Hi,
    I need to create a XML file, but am not facing some issues in creation of XML file, the in the required format.
    The required format is
    -<Header1 1st field= u201CValueu201D 2nd field= u201CValueu201D>
       - <Header2 1st field= u201CValueu201D 2nd field= u201CValueu201Du2026u2026. Upto 10 fields>
              <Header3 1st field= u201CValueu201D 2nd field= u201CValueu201Du2026u2026. Upto 6 fields/>
              <Header4  1st field= u201CValueu201D 2nd field= u201CValueu201Du2026u2026. Upto 4 fields/.>
               <Header5 1st field= u201CValueu201D 2nd field= u201CValueu201Du2026u2026. Upto 6 fields/>
          </Header2>
       </Header1>
    Iu2019m using the call transformation to convert ABAP data to XML file.
    So please anybody can help how to define XML structure in transaction XSLT_TOOL.
    And one more thing, here I need to put the condition to display the Header 3, Header 4, Header 5 values. If there is no record for a particular line item in header 3, 4 & 5, I donu2019t want to display full line items; this is only for Header 3, 4 & 5.
    Please help me in this to get it resolved.

    Hello,
    you can use CALL TRANSFORMATION id, which will create a exact "print" of the ABAP data into the XML.
    If you need to change the structure of XML, you can alter your ABAP structure to match the requirements.
    Of course you can create your own XSLT but that is not that easy to describe and nobody will do that for you around here. If you would like to start with XSLT, you´d better start the search.

  • Trying to create a XML file from an ASP Form

    I have an ASP form on my website that generates a XML data
    file, but there are a few problems with it. First, when I generate
    the file, it creates a new file every time a user clicks on
    "Submit" and I would like the data to just be appended to a
    particular, existing XML file...how can I append the data to the
    XML file? The code I am currently using is shown below.
    Secondly, I need to nest/repeat certain fields within the XML
    file. Basically, I want the XML file to look like this (I
    simplified the code for ease of writing, so don't bother with the
    syntax):
    <Recipe>
    <RecipeName>
    <SubmittedBy>
    <Ingredients>
    <Amount>
    <Unit>
    <Ingredient>
    <Description>
    <Directions>
    <Recipe>
    <RecipeName>
    etc...
    How would I create a form that would create that type of XML
    file? Think of a MS Access form with linked subforms, but I don't
    want to repeat more data than I have to.
    Any advice or help would be very appreciated!!! Also, if you
    know of a 3-party product that might solve this for me, I am open
    to that also!
    Thanks!!!
