This document contains the following sections:


The installer automatically installs the DataDirect XML Converters assemblies to the Global Assembly Cache (GAC). This allows the XML Converters DLL file, XmlConverters.dll, to be detected when your application is run.

XML Converters applications can also be run if the XmlConverters.dll is in the same directory as the application .exe.

Sample XML Converters Application

This simple application converts an EDI file of the X12 dialect (myEdi.x12) to an XML file with the name myEdi.x12.xml.

using System;
using DDTek.XmlConverter;

namespace ConverterOne
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Console.WriteLine(args[0] + " --> " + args[1]);
            Converter toXML = new ConverterFactory().CreateConvertToXml("converter:EDI");
            toXML.Convert(new UriSource(args[0]), new UriResult(args[1])); 

To invoke this program, type the following:

ConverterOne myEdi.x12 myEdi.x12.xml

See demo.cs in the \examples directory for additional examples of DataDirect XML Converters applications.
