5.1.11 XML Transformation

All XML services have been designed so a developer can create transformation style sheets to bind data into and out of the XML document.

The XML Transformation Wizard creates the required transformation style sheets to perform this task.

It is possible to use these created XSLT files as a foundation and add additional XSLT instructions. This task needs to be approached with caution as the XSLT syntax is difficult and performance can easily be degraded if incorrect design decisions are made.

For improved transformation performance convert the XSLT files into compiled transformation style sheets using the XSL Compiler.
