XML File generates a File Artifact element, through which you identify the location of the input file to be transformed.

XSLT generates a File Artifact element, through which you identify the XSLT Stylesheet to apply to the transformation.

XSD generates a File Artifact that identifies the schema against which the output of the transformation (as directed in the Output Artifact element) is validated. The results of the validation are written to the 'XSL' tab of the System Output window.

XML Transform generates a stereotyped Activity that performs the transformation.

Output Artifact generates a File Artifact element, through which you specify the location of the output file generated by the transformation, on the 'Files' property page of the element. Output from the transformation will be written to this file.

The elements can be connected to each other using Trace connectors.
