Using XML DOM to parse in ASP

Parsing an xml file using asp can be done using the xmldom object. The xmldom object has a lot of methods to work with an xml file. You can use these methods to iterate through the nodes of an xml file and display the data you get from it. You can also use an xsl file to display the data in a formatted manner according to your requirement.


_______________________________________________

Once you have created an xmldoc object you can use the selectNodes method to select all the nodes that you want from the root node. For example an xmlQuery like "//employees" that is passed to the selectNodes method will get all the nodes of the employees. Assign the result that you get out of the selectNodes command to a variable and find the length of this variable.

This gives the number of nodes you have in the xml file. Now iterate through the nodes using a 'for' loop and use Response.Write to display the result. Use the transformNode method to transform the data you get using an xsl file to get formatted data.
