xslt: generatign xslt to transform one schema to another

Posted on 2007-08-08
Last Modified: 2013-11-18
I have two file schemas, say schema A and B, and I intend to generate XSLT logics for transforming from A to B as well as B to A.
Is there any software tool or wizard that can generate the "base" XSLT by just taking files with schema A and schema B as inputs?

    You need a tool that allows you to also feed in a mapping description
    something such as A element foo should become B attribute @bar

    Stylus Studio has a graphical mapper that does exactly that
    (it generates XSLT in the background)

    I have seen quite a lot of attempts to build something similar over the past few years
    but I have never met a tool that really impressed me
    tools like this are not for serious development, but they can assist for the first skeleton of your XSLT

    If you haven't come accross Stylus Studio before
    it definitely deserves a place in your toolbox if you are into XML and XSLT

    hope this helps

    I see, thank you, Geert, but it's costy and I only need to do this task once.
