Using Transformers in Anchors

Using Transformers in Anchors

You can use transformers in an anchor that creates XML output, such as
Content
. In the Script, nest the transformer components within the
transformers
property of the anchor.
The input of a transformer is the raw output of the anchor, before the anchor inserts the output in a data holder.
For example, suppose you are parsing the following source document:
First name: Ron Last name: Lehrer
You want to create XML output in
ALL CAPS
, like this:
<Person> <FirstName>RON</FirstName> <LastName>LEHRER</LastName> </Person>
To do this, you can configure the
Content
anchors, which retrieve the strings
Ron
and
Lehrer
, with the
ChangeCase
transformer.
