Can you change the XML input step to process my file?

Q: I have to process an XML file which currently can't be processed by KETTLE, e.g. there's one optional field which depends on the value of an element and that should also be included as a field in a row, ... Can you build this functionality in in the XML input step?

A: First of all it would depend what functionality you need. If the functionality is generally useful it can be built in. If it would only be useful for you it wouldn't make sense to build it in.

As alternative solutions: consider processing the XML file via a Javascript step, or if what is required is very complex consider writing your own PDI step which you maintain yourself (outside of the PDI distribution).
