Rules and Conditions for XML Documents
When running a business process that processes XML documents, you must use XPath to describe rules and conditions for processing the XML document.
Specifically, you must create XPath expressions that:
- Identify particular elements (or nodes) and their positions in both the input and output documents.
- Identify particular elements in the input document for copying into an output document or for further processing.
- Define any constraints of name-value pairs for elements.
- Calculate values that depend on other values.
The following table shows sample names and rules using simple syntax:
