Testing a Serializer - Tips

Use the following tips to help you use the Serializer more effectively.
Verify that the example source is well formed.
You need to chose an example source to test. To verify that you have an example source, check the
Data Viewer
view
Input
panel. The
Name
field lists the example source and the panel shows the example source content. You define the example source when create the Serializer. You can change the example source at any time. When the Serializer anchors appear in yellow highlight in the
Data Viewer
view
Input
panel, this signifies that the Script located the anchors. If the anchors do not appear, check that the example source is well formed and matches the schema.
Use a valid schema that matches the example source.
A Serializer uses a schema to define the expected structure of the input XML document. If the file that you choose is not a valid schema or is not well formed, the wizard might not be able to upload the file. If the schema does not match the example source, the Serializer will not work.
Format the output correctly.
To separate the output text with a comma, use a comma in the
closing_str
element. To separate the output text with a carriage return, use the ASCII code
013
in the
closing_str
element. To separate the output text with a line return, use the ASCII code
010
in the
closing_str
element. When you use ASCII codes in the
closing_str
element, you must indicate that a code is an ASCII code rather than regular text by entering CTRL-A as a prefix to the code.
