It’s that time of year when we all start to look forward to the next release of FME.
As FME Evangelist I comb through every single change made to our products (I reviewed about 10,000 for 2012). From that I create the What’s New file, the What’s Great page, and - most importantly - I pick out the tastiest treats to serve to you here.
So, as a flavour of what is to come, here’s a list of my highlights so far for FME2013.
This post concentrates on three new XML transformers: the XMLFlattener, the XMLSampleGenerator, and the XMLUpdater.
XML has a bad reputation as being difficult to understand and complex to use. It is bizarre that something so simple and obvious to look at can simultaneously be difficult to understand and a pain to work with.
But it’s only a pain when you don’t have the right tools: and FME2012 provides tools that work efficiently, in a way that is user friendly to even the most casual XML user.
