User has an XML Job Stream file that won't parse in Revolve 7.0

User has an XML Job Stream file that won't parse in Revolve 7.0


Job Streams from Revovle 6.x and those Job Streams created in Job Stream Editor won't parse in Revolve 7.0, what needs to be done?


It is necessary to convert any XML Job Streams that were created using JobStreamEditor or using a Revolve 6.2 Job Stream written in XML, for Revolve 7.0.  The following instructions are set up to convert the XML for Revolve 7.0.

Here's a sample of the Job Stream in the OLD XML format:

In a command prompt you can type the following to get the help below:

Jsconvert --help


jsconvert - convert XML job stream from 6.x format to 7.0 format

usage is:

jsconvert [--help] [-sname sched-name] < in-file > out-file


- displays this help text and exits

  -sname sched-name

- sets the schedule ID into which streams will be added.

< in-file

- in-file is the name of the 6.2 XML job stream file. Input is read from stdin.

> out-file

- out-file is the name of the 7.0 XML output file. Output is written to stdout.


Actual syntax would be:

C:\jobstream>jsconvert < newtest.str > hcw2.xml
