Convert a graphML file into another graphML using XSL?


Hi have a simple graphML file composed of 3 nodes and 2 connections and I would like to convert it so that the internal structure of tags and attribute is differently organized.

The original file is the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><graphml xmlns="http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/xmlns" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/xmlns http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/xmlns/1.0/graphml.xsd"> <graph edgedefault="undirected"> <node id="0"> <data key="d0">rBSTS</data> <data key="d1" /> <data key="d2" /> <data key="d3">n1</data> <data key="d4" /> </node> <node id="1"> <data key="d1" /> <data key="d4" /> <data key="d0">rCAC</data> <data key="d2" /> <data key="d3">n2</data> </node> <node id="2"> <data key="d1" /> <data key="d4" /> <data key="d0">rCMF</data> <data key="d2" /> <data key="d3">n3</data> </node> <edge source="0" target="1"> <data key="d5">0.252829037184</data> </edge> <edge source="1" target="2"> <data key="d5">0.205407183132</data> </edge> </graph> </graphml>

While the file I would like to obtain is the following (I converted it manually to show the desired result):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <graphml xmlns="http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/xmlns"> <graph edgedefault="undirected"> <node id="n1"> <data key="dn_href"></data> <data key="dn_label">rBSTS</data> <data key="dn_free">rBSTS</data> <data key="dn_intensityvalue">1</data> </node> <node id="n2"> <data key="dn_href"></data> <data key="dn_label">rCAC</data> <data key="dn_free">rCAC</data> <data key="dn_intensityvalue">2</data> </node> <node id="n3"> <data key="dn_href"></data> <data key="dn_label">rCMF</data> <data key="dn_free">rCMF</data> <data key="dn_intensityvalue">3</data> </node> <edge id="e1_2" source="n1" target="n2"> <data key="de_strength">0.252829037184</data> </edge> <edge id="e1_3" source="n2" target="n3"> <data key="de_strength">0.205407183132</data> </edge> </graph> </graphml>

The change of structure is not so easy (e.g. the node ID starts from 0 in the original data structure while it starts from n1 in the desired output): is it possible to convert it by using an XSL transformation?


I've made a few assumptions about the conversion logic you want...

This XSLT stylesheet:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:ns="http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/xmlns" xmlns="http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/xmlns" exclude-result-prefixes="ns #default"> <xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" indent="yes" omit-xml-declaration="yes"/> <!-- The identity transform. By itself, copies out the original input. --> <xsl:template match="node()|@*"> <xsl:copy> <xsl:apply-templates select="node()|@*"/> </xsl:copy> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="ns:node"> <!-- Copy out this element. --> <xsl:copy> <!-- Give it a new 'id' attribute that takes the value of the 'data' element for 'key' of 'd3'. --> <xsl:attribute name="id"> <xsl:value-of select="ns:data[@key='d3']"/> </xsl:attribute> <!-- Output empty 'data' element for 'key' of 'dn_href'. --> <data key="dn_href"/> <!-- Do something particular for 'key' of 'd0'. --> <xsl:apply-templates select="ns:data[@key='d0']"/> <!-- Don't know where this value comes from! --> <data key="dn_intensity_value"/> </xsl:copy> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="ns:edge"> <xsl:copy> <!-- Add an 'id' attribute. I'll let you work out what it should be. --> <xsl:attribute name="id"/> <xsl:apply-templates select="node()|@*"/> </xsl:copy> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="ns:data[@key='d0']"> <!-- It seems we want two 'data' elements, with different 'key's, and the text from the element with 'key' of 'd0'. --> <xsl:copy> <xsl:attribute name="key">dn_label</xsl:attribute> <xsl:apply-templates select="text()"/> </xsl:copy> <xsl:copy> <xsl:attribute name="key">dn_free</xsl:attribute> <xsl:apply-templates select="text()"/> </xsl:copy> </xsl:template> <!-- It seems 'd5' keys get changed to 'de_strength'. --> <xsl:template match="@key[. = 'd5']"> <xsl:attribute name="key"> <xsl:value-of select="'de_strength'"/> </xsl:attribute> </xsl:template> <!-- Mapping for source attributes. --> <xsl:template match="ns:edge/@source"> <xsl:attribute name="source"> <xsl:value-of select="//ns:node[@id=current()]/ns:data[@key='d3']"/> </xsl:attribute> </xsl:template> <!-- Mapping for target attributes. --> <xsl:template match="ns:edge/@target"> <xsl:attribute name="target"> <xsl:value-of select="//ns:node[@id=current()]/ns:data[@key='d3']"/> </xsl:attribute> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet>

produces the following output when applied to your example input:

<graphml xmlns="http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/xmlns" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/xmlns http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/xmlns/1.0/graphml.xsd"> <graph edgedefault="undirected"> <node id="n1"> <data key="dn_href"/> <data key="dn_label">rBSTS</data> <data key="dn_free">rBSTS</data> <data key="dn_intensity_value"/> </node> <node id="n2"> <data key="dn_href"/> <data key="dn_label">rCAC</data> <data key="dn_free">rCAC</data> <data key="dn_intensity_value"/> </node> <node id="n3"> <data key="dn_href"/> <data key="dn_label">rCMF</data> <data key="dn_free">rCMF</data> <data key="dn_intensity_value"/> </node> <edge id="" source="n1" target="n2"> <data key="de_strength">0.252829037184</data> </edge> <edge id="" source="n2" target="n3"> <data key="de_strength">0.205407183132</data> </edge> </graph> </graphml>

As you can see, it's not perfect (extra namespaces, a few attribute values missing) but hopefully it shows you what you might do.
