Subject Any Interest in Betwixt Map Templates?
Date Thu, 29 Jun 2006 21:10:22 GMT
Recently Thomas F. pointed me to Betwixted as a good XML import/export
tool.  
http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/betwixt/
 
I liked it. But to do what I wanted, it needed a different DTD than
Torque
currently produces and a <betwixt-config> file to make the XML more
readable, 
typo friendly, and work directly with the OM classes (as opposed to
Beans 
only).
  
Rather than manually creating and try to keep them in sync with my
schema,
I'm working on some Generator templates that will create a Betwixt Multi

Mapping Document (<betwixt-config>) file (
http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/betwixt/guide/binding.html#Multi_Mappi
ng_Document_Format 
) and a matching DTD from the Torque Schema XML. These will be tied to
the
datadtd task and only be done if an optional build property flag is set.
 
This would make it very simple to use Betwixt to import/export data
to/from
any record object in your schema.  Here's a sample of what the generated

XML will look like.
 
<!DOCTYPE dataset SYSTEM "bookstore-betwixt.dtd">
<dataset name="bookstore">
   <user>
      <id>1</id>
      <userName>admin</userName>
      <password>secret</password>
   </user>
   <role>
      <id>1</id>
      <name>Admin</name>
      <userName>admin</userName>
   </role>
</dataset>
 
Is there any interest in including this as a new Torque feature?
