Outline of the Transformation Approach

Outline of the Transformation Approach

The transformation uses the following approach:
  1. In the input XML, the transformation identifies the corresponding
    Child
    and
    Parent
    elements as follows:
    id
    attribute of
    Parent
    =
    parentID
    attribute of
    Child
  2. The transformation creates
    Hobby
    and
    Person
    elements. It identifies the
    Hobby
    element where it should nest each
    Person
    element as follows:
    name
    attribute of
    Hobby
    =
    hobby
    attribute of
    Child
  3. The transformation writes the child's first name into the
    Person
    element.
  4. The transformation writes the parent's last name into the
    Person
    element.
