Reply with quote

I am trying to create an XML file from a COBOL program using the XML GENERATE function . My program would run on Mainframe Z/OS

There appears to be one limitation though
COBOL structure
01 EMPLOYEE.
05 ID PIC X(1).
05 NAME PIC X(10.
05 DEPT PIC X(10).

XML GENERATE will create all sub elements
<employee>
<id>1</id>
<name>xyz</name>
<dept>abc</dept>
</employee>

XML GENERATE WITH ATTRIBUTES will create all attributes
<employee id="1" name="xyz" dept="abc">
</employee>

Is there a way we can somehow indicate that some sub group items should be attributes and some sub elements
<employee id="1">
<name>xyz</name>
<dept>abc</dept>
</employee>

Look it up in the Programming Guide. Only elementary items will be attributes, group items not. However, all your group items will have to have attributes, so you'll have to see if that suits your purposes. Check it out yourself, as I've not done this, just got it from the manual.
