The matchCandidateXML() method is used to match a record in an XML document to candidate records embedded in the same XML document. This method will append the “matchPattern” attribute to any candidate record that is considered a match. The “matchPattern” attribute will be set to the appropriate match pattern value. This method does not return match suspects. To return match suspects as well as candidates, use the matchCandidateWithSuspectsXML() method on page 45.

Note: Use of this method requires a special configuration file to define the format of the XML document. This configuration file is pointed to by the TRILLCONFIG environment variable.

Syntax

public void matchCandidateXML(int handle,
                              java.lang.String rootTag,

                              java.lang.StringBuffer outputXML,
                              int retCode[]);
