Enable the XPathView + XSLT plugin

This functionality relies on the XPathView + XSLT plugin, which is bundled and enabled in DataGrip by default. If the relevant features aren't available, make sure that you didn't disable the plugin.

  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+S to open the IDE settings and then select Plugins.

  2. Open the Installed tab, find the XPathView + XSLT plugin, and select the checkbox next to the plugin name.

XSLT run/debug configuration

This page describes the configuration-specific items as well as options that are common for all run/debug configurations. For more information about using this configuration, refer to XSLT run configurations and Debugging.

Settings tab

Item

Description

Input

Use the controls in this area to specify the XML file you want to process and the script you want to execute.

  • XSLT Script File - in this field, specify the path to the XSLT Style Sheet file. Type the path manually or click Browse the Browse button and select the desired file in the Choose XSLT File dialog that opens.

  • Choose XML Input File - from this list, select the XML input file to be transformed. The list contains all the XML files that have been associated with the chosen Style Sheet via the File Associations functionality. To specify a file, which is not on the list, click Browse the Browse button and select the desired file in the Choose XML File dialog, that opens.

Output

Use the controls in this area to configure handling of the script output.

  • Show in Default Console - select this option to have the output displayed in the normal run console, together with any warnings and error messages from the XSLT transformer, as well as messages generated by the script, for example, by xsl:message.

  • Show in Extra Console Tab - select this option to have the produced output displayed in an extra, XSLT Output, tab.

    This option is selected by default.

  • Highlight Output As - select the file type to highlight the output as.

  • Save to File - select this option to have the output saved directly to a file. In the field, specify the name of the target file. Type the path to the file manually or click Browse the Browse button and select the desired file in the Choose Output File dialog, that opens.

    If you type the name of a file that does not exist, DataGrip will create a file and save the output to it.

    • Open File in Editor After Execution - select this checkbox to have the file with the output opened in the editor after the script is executed successfully.

    • Open File in Web Browser After Execution - select this checkbox to have the file with the output opened in the configured Web browser after the script is executed successfully.

Parameters

Use the controls in this area to create and manage a list of parameters to be passed to the script.

  • Add Add - click this button to create a new entry.

  • Remove Remove - click this button to remove the selected entry from the list.

  • Name - in this field, specify the name of the parameter.

  • Value - in this field, specify the value of the parameter.

Advanced tab

In this tab, configure additional options that are not commonly required in run configurations.

Item

Description

Smart Error Handling

  • Clear this checkbox to have the console display full error messages including their complete stack traces, when an error occurs during execution.

  • Select this checkbox to suppress showing stack trace and have the console display only the relevant information about errors.

VM Arguments

In this field, specify optional VM arguments to be passed to the VM where the XSLT script is executed. These can be heap size, garbage collection options, file encoding, etc. If the line of VM arguments is too long, click Expand to expand the field and type the text there.

Working Directory

In this field, specify the working directory to use. Type the path manually or click Browse the Browse button and select the desired folder in the Working Directory dialog, that opens.

If no folder is specified in field, the working directory will be the one where the XSLT script file is located.

Common settings

When you edit a run configuration (but not a run configuration template), you can specify the following options:

Item

Description

Name

Specify a name for the run configuration to quickly identify it among others when editing or running.

Allow multiple instances

Allow running multiple instances of this run configuration in parallel.

By default, it is disabled, and when you start this configuration while another instance is still running, DataGrip suggests stopping the running instance and starting another one. This is helpful when a run configuration consumes a lot of resources and there is no good reason to run multiple instances.

Store as project file

Save the file with the run configuration settings to share it with other team members. The default location is .idea/runConfigurations. However, if you do not want to share the .idea directory, you can save the configuration to any other directory within the project.

By default, it is disabled, and DataGrip stores run configuration settings in .idea/workspace.xml.

Toolbar

The tree view of run/debug configurations has a toolbar that helps you manage configurations available in your database as well as adjust default configurations templates.

Item

Shortcut

Move into new folder / Create new folder

Move into new folder / Create new folder. You can group run/debug configurations by placing them into folders.

To create a folder, select the configurations within a category, click Folder, and specify the folder name. If only a category is in focus, an empty folder is created.

Then, to move a configuration into a folder, between the folders or out of a folder, use drag or Move Up and Move Down buttons.

To remove grouping, select a folder and click Remove Configuration.

Sort configurations

Click this button to sort configurations in the alphabetical order.
