Parsing Xml Include Using Python


Recommended Posts

Trying to get xinclude to work with Python using the example from:http://msdn.microsof...y/aa302291.aspx footer.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?><footer>© Contoso Corp, 2003</footer>


 <?xml version="1.0"?><webpage><body>Hello world!</body>   <xi:include href="footer.xml" xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2003/XInclude"/></webpage>

Python Code Executed

from xml.dom.minidom import *xml = 'page'dom = parse("%s\%s.xml" % (path, xml))print dom.toprettyxml(indent=" ")


<?xml version="1.0" ?> <webpage><body>Hello world!</body><xi:include href="footer.xml" xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2003/XInclude"/></webpage>

What I am hoping to get:

<?xml version="1.0"?><webpage><body>Hello world!</body>   <footer xml:base="templates/footer.xml">© Contoso Corp, 2003</footer></webpage>

Essentially, I want to "import" XML data into another XML and have it parsed using Python. I would prefer to not have to install another module... however would do so if needed. Thanks in advance.
