The batch generator comes enabled for use with an XML data source. Any XML file can serve as a data source. Token names are XPath queries that identify nodes in the XML file. If a given XPath identifies more than one node in an XML file, all the nodes will be used for data, with the first node populating the first file in the batch, and subsequent nodes populating subsequent files. If two (or more) XPath queries supply node sets of different size, then an empty string will be inserted when the data from the smaller XPath node set has been exhausted. See the basic tutorial for an example of these aspects of using the XML data source.
