How would that XSLT generator look like? XSLT is a programming language and you can do (almost) anything with it in regards to transforming one format into the other. The output can be XML, HTML, Text, and with XSLT 2.0 even other formats can be supported (actually, in XSLT 1.0 as well, but that requires extensions).

It seems that your XSLT contains nodes under ns0:result which should be translated into <td>keyname</td><td>keyvalue</td>. This only requires a few lines of XSLT to do. Hold on a minute., I'll dig up an example.

My 10 minutes. This little XSLT will provide the output you specified:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet
    xmlns:types="http://oracle.e1.bssv.JPF43111/types/"
    xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
 
    <xsl:output method="html" indent="yes" />
    
    <xsl:template match="/">
        <html>
            <body>
                <table width="640" border="2">
                    <xsl:apply-templates select="*" />
                </table>
            </body>
        </html>
    </xsl:template>
    
    <xsl:template match="types:result/*">
        <tr>
            <td><xsl:value-of select="local-name(.)"/></td>
            <td><xsl:value-of select="."/></td>
        </tr>
    </xsl:template>
    
    <!-- do not output anything for nodes we do not specify -->
    <xsl:template match="* | node()" >
        <xsl:apply-templates select="*" />
    </xsl:template>
    
</xsl:stylesheet>

More to the point, because I used indent="yes", this is the output when I run it against your data:

<html xmlns:types="http://oracle.e1.bssv.JPF43111/types/">
   <body>
      <table width="640" border="2">

         </tr>
         <tr>
            <td>orderType</td>
            <td>OH</td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
            <td>documentOrderInvoiceE</td>
            <td>6255</td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
            <td>lineNumber</td>
            <td>2.000</td>
         </tr>
         <tr>

I think you are referring to something like this
http://www.stylusstudio.com/xslt_designer.html
But tools like that have limitations,
anyway, it can get you started,
you can download it to have a test

No, as far as I know there are two products of this kind.
The second delivers obscure XSLT and is more expensive, so I don't mention it
(and by the way I hate Altova tools :)

So much for giving a full, simple solution that gives you the requested output... :(

Anyway, glad that you found what you want. I know I didn't answer your original request, mainly because these tools seldomly create helpful XSLT files, let alone performant or elegant and that I just wanted to show you how easy it can be to do it by hand (and in my case, I use oXygen or Stylus Studio). I second the opinion of Gertone on Mapforce, I tried it years ago and won't do that again any time soon.
