General

All pipelets in this bundle support the configurable error handling as described in SMILA/Development_Guidelines/How_to_write_a_Pipelet#Implementation. When used in jobmanager workflows, records causing errors are dropped.

Read Type

  • runtime: Parameters are read when processing records. Parameter value can be set per Record.
  • init: Parameters are read once from Pipelet configuration when initializing the Pipelet. Parameter value can not be overwritten in Record.

org.eclipse.smila.processing.pipelets.xmlprocessing.XmlSplitterPipelet

Description

This pipelet splits an XML stream into multiple XML snippets. For each snippet a new record is created where the XML snippet is stored in either an attribute or attachment. The created records are not returned as a PipeletResult (this is just the same as the incoming RecordIds) but are directly sent to the ConnectivityManager and are routed once more to the queue.

On each created record the attribute __isXmlSnippet=true is set to true. Incoming records with this attribute set are not splitted again, but returned as the Pipelet result. This way it's possible to add further processing steps that should be done on the splitted records to the same pipeline that does the splitting. See XmlSplitAndAddPipeline.bpel for an example.

Configuration

Property Type Description
inputType String : ATTACHMENT, ATTRIBUTE runtime Defines whether the XML input is found in an attachment or in an attribute of the record. An input attribute is not interpreted as to contain XML content itself but rather as a file path or an URL to the XML document.
outputType String : ATTACHMENT, ATTRIBUTE runtime Defines whether the XML snippet should be stored in an attachment or in an attribute of the newly created record.
inputName String runtime The name of the input attachment or the path to the input attribute containing a path to an external data source, e.g. an xml file name
outputName String runtime The name of the output attachment or the path to the output attribute (store result as literals of attribute).
beginTagName String runtime The name of the tag to start the XML snippet with.
isBeginClosingTag Boolean runtime A boolean flag defining whether beginTagName is a closing tag (true) or not (false).
endTagName String runtime The name of the tag to end the xml snippet with.
isEndClosingTag Boolean runtime A boolean flag defining whether endTagName is a closing tag (true) or not (false).
keyTagName String runtime The name of the tag used to create a record ID.
maxBufferSize Integer runtime The maximum size of the internal record buffer (optional, default is 20).
idSeparator String runtime The separator used to create the record IDs of the split records (optional, default is "#").
xmlSnippetJobName String runtime The JobManager job name to submit the split records to. It must be running when the pipelet is executed.

The first four attributes can be set only in the pipelet configuration. All other attributes can seperately customized for each single record by setting them as values of the the _parameters map in the record.

Example

Pipelet configuration for XmlSplitterPipelet

<proc:configuration>
    <rec:Val key="inputType">ATTRIBUTE</rec:Val>
    <rec:Val key="outputType">ATTRIBUTE</rec:Val>
    <rec:Val key="inputName">xmlIn</rec:Val>
    <rec:Val key="outputName">xmlOut</rec:Val>
    <rec:Val key="beginTagName">document</rec:Val>
    <rec:Val key="isBeginClosingTag">false</rec:Val>
    <rec:Val key="endTagName">document</rec:Val>
    <rec:Val key="isEndClosingTag">true</rec:Val>
    <rec:Val key="keyTagName">docId</rec:Val>
    <rec:Val key="idSeparator">#</rec:Val>
    <rec:Val key="xmlSnippetJobName">indexUpdateXml</rec:Val>
</proc:configuration>


The above configuration would split this XML format:

<sampleCollection>
    ...
    <document>
        <docId>4711</docId>
        <title>Some title</title>
        ...
        <text>Some text</text>
    </document>
    <document>
        <docId>0815</docId>  
        ...
    </document>
    ...
</sampleCollection>

into XML snippets like this one:

<document>
    <docId>4711</docId>
    <title>Some title</title>
    ...
    <text>Some text</text>
</document>

And for each snippet a record would be created and submitted to a job run of job "indexUpdateXml".

<Record xmlns="http://www.eclipse.org/smila/record" version="2.0">
  <Val key="_recordid">xmlsplitter:someBigXmlfile.xml#4711</Val>
  <Val key="_source">xmlsplitter</Val>
  <Val key="__isXmlSnippet">true</Val>
  <Val key="xmlOut">
         <document>
            <docId>4711</docId>
            <title>Some title</title>
            ...
            <text>Some text</text>
        </document>   
  </Val>
</Record>

To use the XmlSplitAndAddPipeline.bpel via the predefined asynchronous workflow indexUpdateXml you should create a job definition that sets the "xmlSnippetJobName" to the job's own name:

{
  "name": "indexUpdateXmlJob",
  "workflow": "indexUpdateXml",
  "parameters": {
    "tempStore": "xmlbulks",
    "xmlSnippetJobName": "indexUpdateXmlJob"
  }
}
