we have xml files in external folder and we are crawling the folder in search configuration.How can I crawl XML files and map node values to properties? For example I have a node called "Bussinesslogic" and want to query all xml files with a specific businesslogic property. Is this possible in sharepoint 2010 out-of-the box? Do I have to write an extension in c#?

You would need an ifilter for this vik, possibly a self built one, if you google xml ifilters and look at paid ones, you might find one already, but there are guides on how to roll your own. – Hugh Wood Dec 5 '12 at 6:40

please dont just post links, instead post a short description of the solution and then link. External links (especially blogs) tend to be short lived, and we really like to keep the solution inside our site! Fix please :) – Anders Rask Dec 10 '12 at 8:35
