The XML data retrieved from a back-end server is frequently not in the format needed by your WEF application. Sometimes the structure of the data needs to be changed; sometimes the data itself needs to be changed. This sample shows how to use transform builders to change both the structure and the values of the XML data.
To run this sample in Web Experience Factory Designer, you will need to download the attached project ZIP file
, and import it into a WEF project. Once imported, the project should look like this:
The project has both a provider model and a consumer model. This is a best practice for WEF projects that access data from a back-end server. The provider model contains all of the builders associated with accessing the back-end data, including a Service Definition builder that exposes the service to the consumer model. The consumer model contains all of the builders associated with the user interface, including a Service Consumer builder that is associated with the service from the provider model. The builders we're interested in for this sample are in the provider model.
