XML Toolkit for IBM System i5
The XML Toolkit for IBM® System i5™, licensed program offering (LPO) 5733-XT2, is designed to provide key development enablement components, XML parsers, to assist in the use of XML for general application or business-to-business (B2B) solutions. The XSL transformer allows you to reformat or reorganize XML documents to other formats (for example, XML or HTML).
The XML Toolkit for System i5 is based on cross-platform, open-source code that is designed to be compliant with industry standards. Parser version 5.6 corresponds to Apache Software Foundations' Xerces-C Version 2.6 with fixes. The XSL transformer corresponds to Apache Software Foundations' Xalan-C Version 2.0. In addition to providing the XML for C++ parser and the XSL transformer for C++, a unique interface called XML Procedural parser is provided to the XML for C++ parser that allows applications written in RPG, C, or COBOL to access an XML parser.
Also included with the XML Toolkit is XML Scripting for IBM System i5. XML Scripting for System i5 provides an XML based build tool.
In addition to XML Toolkit for IBM System i5, XML Toolkit for iSeries™ (5733-XT1) is also supported in i5/OS® V5R4. You can find documentation for XML Toolkit for iSeries in the Programming category of the V5R3 Information Center. XML Toolkit for iSeries includes XML Scripting for iSeries and Web Services Client for C++.

Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) allows you to format and reorganize existing XML documents into another format (for example, XML or HTML).
- XML Scripting for IBM System i5 introduction
XML Scripting for IBM System i5 uses an XML formatted file to accomplish a set of tasks on the system. These tasks are grouped in "targets" which allow a different set of tasks to be run in different invocations of the XML Scripting tool. The targets can have dependencies on each other.
- XML Toolkit introduction
To ensure the availability of the latest versions of the XML parsers, XSL transformer, and XML Scripting for IBM System i5, the XML Toolkit for IBM System i5 (5733-XT2) was developed.
