Formatted Display XML dump of RM profiles

Want a cleaner way of presenting/displaying your Resource Model profiles?

I've put together a script which generates HTML files, xml dumps of profiles, and an XML stylesheet in a directory structure tivoli_resmons. The HTML files are javascript that format the XML dumps against my stylesheet, which display every attribute of a Tmw2kProfile. NOTE: It's a work in progress, also working on doing this for the dmlseng xml output also.

All Resource Models of a profile are displayed in a browser in an easy to navigate html format, with the help of the Resource Models index on the upper left. Just open the HTML files under the tivoli_resmon directory, and you should be pleasantly surprised.

There are a couple of significant caveats, however, and I am wide open to ideas and suggestions, so don't hesitate to email me or post a comment, if you have a solution.

  • unable to export/save the displayed data as HTML or any other format

  • must be displayed in a browser that is able to parse/translate XML (i.e. Internet Explorer)

The obvious solution would be to write something that will take the stylesheet and xml data and translate to an HTML file, so if you think you can do it, please post your idea here.
