Hello - I am relatively new to xslt. I was wondering how to flag records that don't match a pattern. I am going to be iterating through about 8000 xml files in java transforming them from one xml to another format required by a different company. I know that I am going to miss some of the patterns at first but was wondering if there's a way to flag the files that don't match up and maybe write them to a seperate directory.
For example in matching author tags (<AU>Slade, Grant^Riggins, John</Au>) - could I do something in the xsl:otherwise part?: <xsl:template match="AU"> <contrib contrib-type="author"> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="contains(., '^')"> <xsl:for-each select="tokenize(.,'\^')"> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="contains(.,',')"> <name> <surname> <xsl:value-of select="substring-before(.,',')"/> </surname> <given-names> <xsl:value-of select="substring-after(.,',')"/> </given-names> </name> </xsl:when> </xsl:choose> </xsl:for-each> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise>OUTPUT TO DIFFERENT DIRECTORY HERE?</xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> </contrib> </xsl:template>
