Subject Workaround solution: Challenge using doXslTransform with additional parameters which are messages
Date Mon, 30 Aug 2010 09:25:33 GMT
The problem when passing additional parameter to the doXSLTransform method
is, that the default types for these parameters are per definition
result-tree fragments and not node-sets as the second parameter of the
doXSLTransform function. There is only a limited number of operations
allowed on result-tree fragments, but some parsers seem to implement
extension functions for conversion of result-tree fragments into node-sets.

 

To make a long story short I used the following workaround solution that
works.

 

I copied the arrays from all four messages into one "wrapper" help variable
and afterwards I called the doXSLTransform function with the corresponding
xsl-sheet as well as the "wrapper" help variable as parameters as you can
see in the following assign statement:

 

<bpel:assign validate="no" name="Assign values to compliant video and audio
list request message">                    <bpel:copy>

        <bpel:from>

             <bpel:literal xml:space="preserve">

<impl:footballGamesResponse></impl:footballGamesResponse>

<impl:sportingAudioResponse></impl:sportingAudioResponse>   

                      </impl:container>

Betreff: Challenge using doXslTransform with additional parameters which are
messages 

 

Dear all,

 

I would like to ask you for help regarding the following challenge.

 

I try to transform four response messages from two video and two audio
providers 

containing arrays of data on available videos and audios to a request
message for another web service.

 

Therefore, I specified the following BPEL assign:

 

<bpel:assign validate="no" name="Assign values to compliant video and audio
list request message">

<bpel:copy>

<bpel:from>

bpel:doXslTransform("MappingArraysFromProvidersToAssemblyRequestMessage.xsl"
, $VideosFromVideoSportResponse.parameters,
"AudioSportRequestAudiosResponse", $AudiosFromAudioSportResponse.parameters,


"FootballGamesRequestVideosResponse",
$VideosFromFootballGamesResponse.parameters,
"SportingAudioRequestAudiosResponse",
$AudiosFromSportingAudioResponse.parameters)

</bpel:from>

<bpel:to part="parameters" variable="AssembleVideoAndAudioListRequest">

</bpel:to>

</bpel:copy>

</bpel:assign>

 

The challenge is, that the XSL transformation only works for the first
"default" parameter $VideosFromVideoSportResponse.parameters, but the other
additional and following parameters in the signature of the function are
ignored.

I use and have to use Apache ODE version 1.1.1, because I have to use an
extension that has been implemented by a student based on version 1.1.1, but
this extension is completely independent of the challenge I describe here. 

During the execution, there is no fault or error message in the logging
output of ODE with debug on.

 

I attached the corresponding XSL style sheet. 

For the content of the input parameters of the doXslTransform function and
the content of the output variable AssembleVideoAndAudioListRequest please
see the attachment.

 

I already took a look in the specification of BPEL 2.0, "asked" Google,
searched in the ode-user-mailing list archive and I took a look on the
Apache ODE test cases for the doXslTransform function, but unfortunately I
did not found any solution yet.

 

I'd really appreciate your help!

 

Thanks a lot in advance.

 

Best regards,

Steve
