Well, Larry, looks like you've opened a big can of X-worms!

COBOL actually has stuff to convert data to XML format and even save to an IFS file, I believe - just did a quick look to see what is there. RPG can only read at this time with its op-codes.

Java has good support for this, as well. But I think, from talking with a colleague here, that you need to know what is the expected structure. Then you need some probably nested routines for the various nodes, which can varying multiple elements at the various levels.

And that's all I know on short notice!

Hello list,
I’m not very savvy on these matters, but I have a friend who wants to know if there is a tool on the system I that will create xml type files which he needs to transmit to a bank.
Does our favorite platform facilitate this easily, or is there a tool for this?

Thanks, Larry
