Script to Parse XML in IBM BPM

We use XML parsing a lot during database calls. For retrieving data from a table it may return result of type “XMLElement”. In such cases we need to parse that in to an business object . Here I will show the same.

In my retrieve data integration service Im expecting result of type EmployeeDetails

Then in the Sql Excute nested service the return type is “XMLElement”

This above will return result of below type

This needs to be parsed as Business object to be sent as output


Parsing Script

if(tw.local.results != null && tw.local.results.childNodes && tw.local.results.childNodes.length > 0 ){
    var firstelement = tw.local.results.childNodes.item(0);
     tw.local.employeeData = new tw.object.EmployeeDetails();
     tw.local.employeeData.employeeId = firstelement.xpath("record/column[@name='EMPID']")[0].getText(); = firstelement.xpath("record/column[@name='EMPLOYEENAME']")[0].getText(); = firstelement.xpath("record/column[@name='PLACE']")[0].getText(); = firstelement.xpath("record/column[@name='PHONE']")[0].getText();
     tw.local.employeeData.designation = firstelement.xpath("record/column[@name='DESIGNATION']")[0].getText();
     tw.local.employeeData.department = firstelement.xpath("record/column[@name='DEPARTMENT']")[0].getText();
     tw.local.employeeData.qualification = firstelement.xpath("record/column[@name='QUALIFICATION']")[0].getText();
     tw.local.employeeData.address = firstelement.xpath("record/column[@name='ADDRESS']")[0].getText();

This results in below output variable

 Same way we can parse for other return types such as NameValuePair etc.

Please do comment if you have any questions . Hope this helps someone and have a good day!
