XSL - Adding an attribute and renaming a tag?

I have the following input
<CommandRS Version="2003.XML1.0.1">
      <Response>MR - COLLECT&lt;X&gt; X IF SAME FOP OR OVERRIDE &lt;USD&gt;</Response>
</CommandRS>


I was assisted by an expert such that my xslt will process the above and translate it to = <Response> <X><CAD><X> </Response> using:

  <xsl:template match="Response">
    <xsl:copy>
      <xsl:call-template name="strip-between-tags">
        <xsl:with-param name="str" select="."/>
      </xsl:call-template>
    </xsl:copy>
  </xsl:template>

  <xsl:template name="strip-between-tags">
    <xsl:param name="str"/>
    <xsl:if test="contains($str, '&lt;')">
      <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&lt;</xsl:text>
      <xsl:value-of select="substring-before(substring-after($str, '&lt;'), '&gt;')"></xsl:value-of>
      <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&gt;</xsl:text>
      <xsl:call-template name="strip-between-tags">
        <xsl:with-param name="str" select="substring-after($str, '&gt;')"/>
      </xsl:call-template>
    </xsl:if>
    <xsl:if test="not (contains($str, '&lt;'))">
      <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes"> &lt;X&gt; </xsl:text>    
    </xsl:if>
  </xsl:template>

I understand this XML is not well formed, that wasn't the intent. I'm trying to built a specific message for a client.


However, I want my response to be

<CommandRQ Version="2003.XML1.0.1">
      <Request> <X><CAD><X> </Request>
</CommandRQ>



How do i add the attribute value inside a <CommandRQ> tag and replace the <Response> tag with <Request> ?

You will need a template for

<xsl:template match="CommandRS">
    <CommandRQ Version="2003.XML1.0.1">
      <xsl:apply-templates/>
    </CommandRQ>
</xsl:template>

and you need to replace the xsl:copy in the template for Response with the new name literal element


<xsl:template match="Response">
    <Request>
...
</Request>

You need a copy template XSLT with some special xsl:template's which do the replacement:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
	<xsl:template match="CommandRS">
		<CommandRQ>
			<xsl:apply-templates select="*|@*"/>
		</CommandRQ>
	</xsl:template>

	<xsl:template match="Response">
		<Request>
			<xsl:apply-templates select="*|@*|text()"/>
		</Request>
	</xsl:template>

	<xsl:template match="*">
		<xsl:copy>
			<xsl:apply-templates select="*|@*|text()"/>
		</xsl:copy>
	</xsl:template>
	<xsl:template match="@*|text()">
		<xsl:copy/>
	</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>

Note that z2c forgot the attribute Version in the first template.

Don't use the second template (for Response) from his solution since that might wipe out the parsing from the Response template you already have. Make sure you merge as I suggested

The other two templates are not necessary in your current setting, but they won't hurt. It is good policy to have them around anyway

If I use suggestion :

  <xsl:template match="Response">
    <Request>
    <xsl:copy>
      <xsl:call-template name="strip-between-tags">
        <xsl:with-param name="str" select="."/>
      </xsl:call-template>
    </xsl:copy>  
    </Request>  
  </xsl:template>



this produces <CommandRQ Version="2003.XML1.0.1">
      <Request><Response> <X><CAD><X> </Response></Request>
</CommandRQ>

How do i eliminate the Responsetag?

drop the xsl:copy tag

  <xsl:template match="Response">
    <Request>
      <xsl:call-template name="strip-between-tags">
        <xsl:with-param name="str" select="."/>
      </xsl:call-template>
    </Request>  
  </xsl:template>

Gertone, since it's a generally a copy-template, it also copies the Version attribute as well, right. So I did not forgot it.
