You are here: XML > XMLSampleGenerator


This transformer generates an XML document based on an XML Schema (XSD) file. While the sample document may not pass a schema validation, it will provide a generate outline of what a valid XML document looks like. The XML generated by this transformer can be used as a base for an XML template used in the XMLTemplater transformer.

In addition to generating entire XML documents, this transformer may also be used to generate small portions of an XML document. All that is required is the path to the element which is to be generated.

Note that in order to prevent infinite recursions, the transformer will not generate recursive complex types or substitution groups. Recursive types and substitution groups will be generated once, and nested types/groups will not be generated.
