Hello,

I have an XML File I read into an EMF model. I reverse engineer the schema of this XML and use this as basis to generate the ecore model. Now i have some special part in this XML:
                    <AttributeList>
                      <Culture>en-US</Culture>
                      <Text><body><p>text</p></body></Text>
                    </AttributeList>


The <Text></Text> block contains html tags but it can also contains plain text. My goal is it that the content of the text block is parsed into the attribute as String.

My problem is that the emf parser try to parse the body as feature. How can I tell them that he should ignore the content between the <Text></Text> or maybe can I escape it? I don't want to change or manipulate the original xml File.

Thanks for Help

You can't do that. The SAX parser itself will necessarily parse the elements within <Text></Text> so the result must always be a structure representation. You can use a containment feature of type anyType from the XMLType model, but you'll never get just a string value out of nested XML elements.

Hi

Have you considered XHTML?

AnyType is a good advice. I have try this and it solve my problem. It is important for me that the original structur is keep. That I can not get a direct String attribute is not so important it only would be a "nice to have" goal for me.
