Hello Experts,
Can we process empty file using XSLT..

I want to transform a empty file to this output below:

<DynamicValidationValueChanges dynamicValidationId="String" xsichemaLocation="_http://integration.cbre.com/schemas/gcs/intrepid/tsdynamicvalidation/v1 integration.cbre.com.schemas.gcs.intrepid.tsdynamicvalidation.v1.xsd" xmlns="_http://integration.cbre.com/schemas/gcs/intrepid/tsdynamicvalidation/v1" xmlns:xsi="_http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"/>


Any Idea?

Thanks

well, why process an known to be empty file using XSLT?
Test the string content of the source, and when empty dump the expected result

Anyhow, XSLT requires a wellformed XML document as the source,
a wellformed XML documents has to the least exactly one root element
so an empty file can not serve as the source of an XSLT

Using XSLT2 you can indicate a starting template (has to be a named template)
but still you have to work around to cover both empty files and XML files,
so you are better off to deal with empty document logic outside the XSLT

I usually try to get the process generating the XML output at least an empty root element, so can easily cover teh required logic in pure XSLT terms
