This is definitely a good idea. I have talked to the team and they are positive that we should include such samples in our documentation. Indeed currently we do lack such examples . However in case you are stuck with implementation regarding particular XML or JSON datasource - do not hesitate to drop a post here or submit a support ticket . We will be glad to assist you with implementing the code. Just be sure to provide some sample data so we are aware of the specific schema.
