In powerEXT you don't need a template, you just write xml directly into the
output buffer uning the build in xml procedures ....

clearSrvPgm();
setContent('*none');

xmlNode('Sede');
if field1 <> '';
xmlNode('Indirizzo':'':field1);
endif;
if field2 <> 0;
xmlNode('NumeroCivico':'':%editc(field2:'X'));
endif;
...
xmlEndNode();

echoToStmf('/testfile.xml':1208);

If you have an example of the XML you has to generate you can even run the
command PXXMLRPGCM that generates a skeleton RPG sourcecode that generates
the XML file.

Hi all



In this years, i have used CGIDEV2 (as descripted at
www.mcpressonline.com/programming-other/general/play-time-productive-time
<
http://www.mcpressonline.com/programming-other/general/play-time-productive
-time
<http://www.mcpressonline.com/programming-other/general/play-time-productive-time>>
) for generating Xml with RPG; as i would need to generate XML on
V5R4 or al least at V6R1, i would like to know if with XMLi or PowerEXT i
can solve the problem not to pass/write the empty tags;

Example (using CGIDEV2)

In my template i have:

/$SedeCES

<Sede>

<Indirizzo>/%Indirizzo%/</Indirizzo>

<NumeroCivico>/%NumeroCivico%/</NumeroCivico>

<CAP>/%CAP%/</CAP>

<Comune>/%Comune%/</Comune>

<Provincia>/%Provincia%/</Provincia>

<Nazione>/%Naz%/</Nazione>

</Sede>

When my variable “NumeroCivico” è blank in my Xml i will find:

<Sede>

<Indirizzo>Via del Corso</Indirizzo>

<NumeroCivico></NumeroCivico>

<CAP>00100</CAP>

<Comune>ROMA</Comune>

<Provincia>RM</Provincia>

<Nazione>IT</Nazione>

</Sede>

And clearly this is not good ….as in the <NumeroCivico> there is no value

The simplest way to solve the problem with CGIDEV2 is to change Xml
template
like this:



/$SedeCES

<Sede>

<Indirizzo>/%Indirizzo%/</Indirizzo>

/$NumeroCivicoCES

<NumeroCivico>/%NumeroCivico%/</NumeroCivico>

/$SedeCESContinua

<CAP>/%CAP%/</CAP>

<Comune>/%Comune%/</Comune>

<Provincia>/%Provincia%/</Provincia>

<Nazione>/%Naz%/</Nazione>

</Sede>



And add in my RPG :

If NumeroCivico <> *Blank;

WrtSection('NumeroCivicoCES');

Endif



The same thing could be for CAP or Comune and in this way , it would be a
proliferate of IF cond and "WrtSection". It would be nice and helpful to
say
not write empty tags in Xml ..

My questione now is:

with XMLi or PowerEXT , can i solve/avoid this problem with more ease ?

Any suggestions will appreciated

Thanks in advance
