Example of AdditionalOutputPort

Example of AdditionalOutputPort

A Parser generates the following XML structure:
<Person gender="M"> <Name> <First>Ron</First> <Last>Lehrer</Last> </Name> <Id>547329876</Id> <Age>27</Age> </Person>
The following figure shows a Parser that uses two
WriteValue
actions to generate output.
Level 1 WriteValue >> level 2 input = /Person level 2 output = ResultFile() level 1 WriteValue >> level 2 input = /Person/*s/Name level 2 output = OutputPort level 3 port = MyOutputPort level 1 ... global level MyOutputPort = AdditionalOutputPort >> level 1 output_encoding = PortEncoding >> level 3 code_page = Windows_1252
The first
WriteValue
writes the entire
<Person>
element to the default results file.
<Person gender="M"> <Name> <First>Ron</First> <Last>Lehrer</Last> </Name> <Id>547329876</Id> <Age>27</Age> </Person>
The second
WriteValue
references an
AdditionalOutputPort
to write the nested
<Name>
element to another file.
<Name> <First>Ron</First> <Last>Lehrer</Last> </Name>
