I've seen a few tools, e.g. in Biztalk, Tibco, Excelon Stylus, etc that
work like this, but personally I'm not convinced by them. They make it
quick to define a trivial transformation but as soon as you want to do
anything remotely complex, like grouping or hierarchic inversion, you're
stuck. Buy the book and learn the language, it will pay off in the end.
