XML Integration (Magic xpa 3.x)
Extensible Markup Language (XML) uses a flexible standards-based format, which enables you to easily share data locally (Intranet) and globally (Internet).
Magic xpa provides you with the ability to use XML documents as a standard data source.
You can define an XML data source (XML view) in the Data repository and define a task to manipulate and handle the XML data.
When using an XML data source, you can create Magic xpa tasks (Batch, Rich Client and Online) that read and manipulate XML documents using XML views. The XML views can be defined in tasks either as a main source or as a linked source.
You can verify the validity of XML documents using the XMLValidate and XMLValidationError functions. See XML Validation.
XML schema namespaces are automatically handled by Magic xpa. XML and XSD files that use namespaces do not require any applicative translation between aliases and URIs.
Magic xpa provides another method for handling XML documents using XML-related functions. These functions should be used for backward compatibility with eDeveloper V9.4 applications. The two methods should not be used together in the same task.
