Command line tool for testing NXSD Translator

Several times, you simply wish to test the nXSD schema to make sure that nXSD annotations are correct and that the generated xml/native data conforms to the business semantics and so on. If you wish to do that now, you are required to write a BPEL process with an inbound and/or outbound File Adapter partner link configured with the appropriate nXSD schema and test them on the SOA server and this is both time consuming and error prone .

What we actually need is a simple standalone test client that lets you verify your nXSD schemas and this blog entry showcases such a tool.

Pre-requisites for the tool:
You will need to add the following jars in the classpath. Please note that these jars (with the exception of test-translator.jar) are available as a part of your soa installation. Please use Java 6 in order to run the test client.

  • bpm-infra.jar [This is the nXSD runtime jar available under $SOA_HOME/soa/modules/oracle.soa.fabric_11.1.1/]
  • xmlparserv2.jar [This is the Oracle XDK library for parsing available under $FMW_HOME/oracle_common/modules/oracle.xdk_11.1.0]
  • xml.jar [This is the Oracle XDK library for schema validation available under $FMW_HOME/oracle_common/modules/oracle.xdk_11.1.0]
  • mail.jar [Java mail API]
  • test-translator.jar [Please note that you will need to rename the extension from jarr to jar]

Now you can run: java xlator.util.Translate -help and the usage should be displayed as shown below.

Sample run to convert address-csv.txt to address-csv.xml.
java xlator.util.Translate -inbound -schema address-csv.xsd -root Root-Element -input address-csv.txt -output address-csv.xml

Sample run to convert address-csv.xml to address-csv.txt.
java xlator.util.Translate -outbound -schema address-csv.xsd -root Root-Element -input address-csv.xml -output address-csv.txt

Sample run to convert address-csv.txt to a series of address-csv.xml_batch_%SEQ%.xml files using de-batching.
java xlator.util.Translate -inbound -debatch 1 -schema address-csv.xsd -root Root-Element -input address-csv.txt -output address-csv.xml
