SET

The SET command is used for two distinct operations. Use the DIR keyword to set the current working directory or alternatively use the LIST, FRAGMENT, or INSTRUCTION keywords to populate the outbound document object.

Once you have completed your SET commands your next command would invariably be the WRITE command.

Keywords

LIST

This keyword is used to place a list of values into an XML document.

Refer to the Lists and Variables section below for further details on how to use this keyword.

The LIST keyword does not have any relationship with the DIR keyword.

This keyword is conditional.

FRAGMENT

This keyword is used to place a field or group of fields into an XML document.

Refer to the Lists and Variables section below for further details on how to use this keyword.

The FRAGMENT keyword does not have any relationship with the DIR keyword.

This keyword is conditional.

SUBSET

Optional. See SUBSET.

INSTRUCTION

This keyword is used to set the XML processing instruction.

This keyword is used in conjunction with the DATA keyword.

The INSTRUCTION keyword does not have any relationship with the DIR keyword.

This keyword is conditional.

DATA

This keyword is used to set the XML processing instructions data.

This keyword is conditional. It is used in conjunction with the INSTRUCTION keyword.

DIR

This keyword is used to nominate a relative or absolute path to be set as the current directory.

The DIR keyword does not have any relationship with the other keywords for the SET command.

This keyword is conditional.

Comments / Warnings

There are two possible ways to add a list of data when creating an XML document.

1.  The most obvious way is to use the SET command described here with the LIST keyword, then specifying the array in a working list. With this approach the section of XML would need to be defined as a list in the XML Binding Wizard.

2.  Alternatively, the same could be achieved by using the FRAGMENT keyword inside some looping code. Each loop would add a new row to the list. XML documents and readers will automatically pick up this repeating sequence as a list. With this approach the section of XML would need to be defined as a fragment in the XML Binding Wizard.

Whichever way you choose, you will need to carefully decide whether the relevant section of XML is defined as a List or a Fragment.

See the Examples following how to do this.

Lists and Variables

If you are using the LIST keyword to create a list in an XML document, you will need to ensure the following steps are taken in your program.

1.  Define a working list that contains the fields that will be passed to the XML document.

2.  Use the SERVICE_LIST keyword with the LIST keyword in the SET command. The service list value should include the names of the fields in the working list without the '#'. The order of the fields should be defined here as they appear in the working list.

3.  In the TO_GET portion of the JSM_COMMAND Built-In Function, include the name of the working list that will hold the values to be placed in the XML document.

If you are using the FRAGMENT keyword to add a field or group of fields, then you will need to add the SERVICE_EXCHANGE keyword with a value of '*FIELD'. How to do this is shown in the Examples following.

INSTRUCTION keyword example

If you wanted to add an XML processing instruction as follows:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/css" href="mystyles.css"?>

 

then you could use the following logic:

 

CHANGE FIELD(#JSMCMD) TO('''SET INSTRUCTION(xml-stylesheet) DATA(type="text/css" href="mystyles.css")''')

USE BUILTIN(JSM_COMMAND) WITH_ARGS(#JSMCMD) TO_GET(#JSMSTS #JSMMSG)
