Import from XML

Import data from an XML file. Data elements are specified by an XML path. Optionally, data elements can be further narrowed down by selecting only particular XML elements and/or their attributes. Values and attributes of parent elements are repeated for child elements in order to preserve relationship between them.

Note that empty elements (e.g. <tag></tag> or <tag/>) are converted into empty text strings, while missing elements result in empty values (i.e. nulls).

DTD Parsing Modes

There are three modes that instruct EasyMorph how to parse DTD definitions:

Mode Behavior
Prohibit (default) DTD is not allowed. When DTD is encountered in the loaded XML file the project fails.
Ignore DTD is allowed, but ignored. When DTD is present in the loaded XML file it is completely ignored and no error is generated.
Parse DTD is parsed.


  • Re-definition of namespaces is not supported. Elements with re-defined namespaces are ignored.
  • Multiple default namespaces per element not supported.
  • XML validation according to DTD or XDS is not performed.
