Managing XML documents/data in pipelines


How have others handled the fact that XML data flows may or may not include the same or a fixed set of elements in them. So you have no idea what will need processing from delivery to the next?

This probably depends a lot on what requirements (if any) you have in your integration. You can default some values if they are required and if there is no data coming on the inbound, then you should not see that field show in the output (you will need null-safe turned on so you don’t get errors). Does that make sense?
