XSLT operation on root element in Author mode?

Post by stdu » Thu Dec 04, 2014 6:15 pm

Hi,

I've created a XSLT to change an attribute in the root element of a XML file. With a manual transformation all works fine. But I wanted this XSLT fired in Author mode by a XSLT action (ro.sync.ecss.extensions.commons.operations.XSLTOperation). By trying this I got a message from oXygen: "Kann keine Elemente oder Text außerhalb des Rootelements hinzufügen" (in englisch perhaps "Can't add elements or text outside of the root element". There is no way to work around this problem, isn't it?

Thx & kind regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

In Oxygen 16.0 we added a fix to the operation which should allow you to replace the root element.
So if you are using Oxygen 16.0 or newer and you still have the problem, please give us more details about the parameters you pass to the operation.

Hi Radu,

thank you very much for the hint! We're currently using version 14.2 in this project, perhaps we have to update to version 16.1, if this is solved there.

Kind regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

To make sure you can use a trial license to test the framework in 16.1 and see how this goes.

Hi Stefan,

I had the same problem some time ago:

If updating to the newer version is no option (for whatever reasons) implementing your own extension bundle could solve the problem as well...
