An ASN.1 source usually contains many messages. Each message is a data structure that conforms to the protocol specification. The source can contain separator strings between the messages, and there can be a header string before the first message.
The data is in a binary format. The following example contains data in the BER encoding:
document processor converts the data to the ASN.1 XER encoding, which is an XML representation. When the Data Processor transformation wizard creates a transformation for ASN.1, it includes the
document processor in the transformation.
The following example contains the XML that the
document processor generates:
The XML hierarchy corresponds to the input message structure.
