  • 1.  extracting xml from string

    Posted Thu June 09, 2022 03:04 PM
    I am creating an API on IBM and the response body from the backend is an xml but in string format, something like this "<xml> </xml>". How can i extract the xml from the string because eventually i want to redact an element in the xml, but because it comes out as a string, I cant access it.

    I don't know what language you are using, but Enterprise COBOL provides an event-based interface that lets you parse XML documents and transform them to COBOL data structures.  https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/cobol-zos/6.2?topic=input-xml-parser-in-cobol
