  • The View article: XPath - A Flexible Solution for Filtering, Visualizing, and Binding XML Data in Your XPages Applications

    I just received the information that an article that I wrote for The View has been published on their website. This article describes a way to use the XPath query language in XPages Expression Language, something I demonstrated in the Lotusphere session BP212.

    Here is the public abstract:

    XPath - A Flexible Solution for Filtering, Visualizing, and Binding XML Data in Your XPages Applications

    By using the XPath query language, you can query XML data in an XPages application and then seamlessly bind the results to the application’s fields and repeater controls. This enables you to easily and dynamically build interfaces using resources in your application or display XML data in a data table. Learn the syntaxes to use and get a demonstration of how to implement them in this flexible, easy-to-maintain solution.
    XPath, the XML path query language, is a powerful tool for selecting nodes and attributes from an XML document. Using XPath statements in XPages expression language, you can build dynamic XPages content based on an XML configuration document. No third-party library is required for this task. All the functionality you need is already available in IBM Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5.2, and all the information you need is here.
