Hi,

I want to generate XML based on XSL and Xpaths.
The XSL file may look like:
<rootNode namespace...>
<mainNode>
<element1>
</element2>
</optionalElement>
</element1>
</element3>
</elemet4>
---
</mainNode>
</rootNode>

And I have map of Xpaths (like "/rootNode/mainNode/element3" ) and corresponding text values .
So how to use XSL and xpath to generate XML / DOM with nodes having run time text values.
Also the final xml document may contain multiple 'mainNode' s.

Thank you.

We have had several questions like this recently!

What is generating this strange requirement? Is this some class homework.

Since you don't have a DOM, any xpath style statements are just a bunch of Strings.

I ask myself that every time I see this question. If it's a real business requirement, then yeah, it's a really strange one.
