Subject Re: Split, transform and aggregate RSS XML feed
Date Sat, 03 Nov 2012 11:37:15 GMT
I guess my crappy english took it place, because I think enricher is not
the thing I need.

What I need, is a RSS feed on input and the same RSS on output, but in JSON
format. I don't need to add there any other content, any other RSS, just
the transformation/converting to JSON.

The solution I have and I described here, is not ideal I guess. I was
thinking that split the RSS feed is a good idea, once it's splitted I can
parse one chunk per time, convert them into POJO classes which holds the
one feed chunk data and at the end, go through the List of POJO classes on
send them  back to browser in JSON.

Maybe, I could skipp the splitting and process the whole RSS XML feed,
maybe with XSLT, I don't know and I don't like XSLT :)

I have to figure it out somehow.
