thank you for the quick answer but I fear that
either I just don't get it or I didn't state my problem correctly
or it is just to early in the morning for functional programming. ;)
I'll try for a more precise problem description - if that still matches
what you had in mind then please elaborate on it because it's a case
of "I don't get it".
The data from the xml-file is non-uniform
(meaning no single template can traverse the tree)
and the feed-mechanism should be independent from the templates.
| - c
| - d
| - c
| - d
whith template calls along the lines of
//in ATemplate :
someOutPutText using $it.c$ and calling $d:Dtemplate()$
The actual classes to hold the XML-data have
to be generic with some kind of getAttributeByName(String: aName);
- This is my first problem. I'm not sure how these "adaptor"-class
should look for StringTemplate to handle it as
Key-value lookups are only supportet by maps. (By the way I am using
the C#-implementation of Stringtemplate and antrl)
I think the solution you gave does not exactly apply to this problem,
Some more Info:
I'd like to write a system which provides some data in the proposed
way and have different users write their own (different) templates
using that data. (AND make that process as simple as possible - hence
the "automatism" for putting xml into the topmost template )
Looking forward to your advice,
P.S.: Thank you for this gread piece of software and
most of all for antlr (looking forward to 3.0)

> Sure. as long as it has children or some other structure.
