Altova RaptorXML+XBRL Server 2021

The C# example below does the following:


Set up and initialize the RaptorXML .NET object

Validate an XML file

Perform an XSLT transformation, return the result as a string

Process an XQuery document, save the result in a file

Set up the execution sequence of the code and its entry point



using System;

using System.Text;

using Altova.RaptorXMLServer;


namespace RaptorXMLRunner


  class Program


  // The RaptorXML Server .NET object

      static ServerClass objRaptorXMLServer;


  // Initialize the RaptorXML Server .NET object

      static void Init()


      // Allocate a RaptorXML Server object

         objRaptorXMLServer = new ServerClass();


      // Configure the server: error reporting, HTTP server name and port

      // (IPv6 localhost in this example)

         objRaptorXMLServer.ErrorLimit = 1;

         objRaptorXMLServer.ReportOptionalWarnings = true;

         objRaptorXMLServer.ServerName = "::1"

         objRaptorXMLServer.ServerPort = 8087




      // Validate one file

        static void ValidateXML()


        // Get a validator engine instance from the Server object

            XMLValidator objXMLValidator = objRaptorXMLServer.GetXMLValidator();


        // Configure input data

            objXMLValidator.InputFileName = "MyXMLFile.xml";


        // Validate; in case of invalid file,

            report the problem returned by RaptorXML

            if ( objXMLValidator.IsValid() )

               Console.WriteLine( "Input string is valid" );


               Console.WriteLine( objXMLValidator.LastErrorMessage );





      // Perform an XSLT transformation, and

      // return the result as a string

        static void RunXSLT()


        // Get an XSLT engine instance from the Server object

               objXSLT.XSLFileName = "MyTransformation.xsl";


          // Run the transformation.

           // In case of success, the result is returned.

           // In case of errors, an error listing

              Console.WriteLine( objXSLT.ExecuteAndGetResultAsString() );





      // Execute an XQuery, save the result in a file

        static void RunXQuery()


        // Get an XQuery engine instance from the Server object

            XQuery objXQuery = objRaptorXMLServer.GetXQuery();

             objXQuery.OutputEncoding = "UTF8"

             objXQuery.OutputIndent = true

             objXQuery.OutputMethod = "xml"

             objXQuery.OutputOmitXMLDeclaration = false


          // Run the query; result serialized to given path

             objXQuery.Execute( "MyQueryResult.xml" );





        static void Main(string[] args)




          // Entry point. Perform all functions






          catch (System.Exception ex)


               Console.WriteLine( ex.Message );

               Console.WriteLine( ex.ToString() );
