The principal capability of the Rules Engine's XML support is data exchange:
•Exporting data from a USoft application to an XML file.
•Importing data from an XML file into a USoft application.
The facility is offered as a small collection of internal components. Internal components are RDMI components that come as part of the USoft installation: you do not need to install these components separately.
You can export data to XML by calling either the Export method or the SQLExport method of the internal component named 'XML':
You can import data from XML by calling the Import method of the internal component named 'XML':
XML that was previously exported by one of these two USoft export methods will have a data format that can be processed successfully by XML.Import. XML from other sources may need to be transformed to this expected data format using the USXSL component.
