Importer

Importer

Flexible integration of existing systems with the Sophora importer.

The Importer is a program for importing content based on a well-defined XML format. The Sophora Importer is flexible so that complex project implementations are avoided.

Above all, the flexible handling of references relieves the delivery system of complex algorithms and multiple import of content.

Importing documents from other systems with the importer: Highlights

Highlights include:

  • Integration of XSL transformations to transform any XML into the Sophora XML format
  • Support for XSLT 1.0 and XSLT 2.0
  • Control of behavior when updating documents
  • Initiate activities (publishing, deleting, etc.) that affect the life cycle of the document
  • Add a document to one or more editorial lists (Sophora: "proposal sections")
  • Targeted removal of certain properties
  • Targeted merging of documents and attached components, for example adding newly imported audio to an existing podcast
  • Import via a watch folder mechanism or via a web service
  • Dynamic identification and linking of documents with search terms
  • Automatic scaling of images during import
  • URLs as a data source
  • Execution of any Java code from the XSLT transformation, whereby Sophora can be accessed via the Client-API
  • Migration mode in order to be able to set fields that cannot otherwise be influenced (creation date, creator, etc.).
  • Import of structure nodes, configurations of content types, users etc.
  • 100% downward compatibility with the imported Sophora XML versions that can be validated using XSD schemas
  • Takes into account all validation and other scripts
