Implementing a new adapter to convert encoded XML string to process data.

I have a BP which converts a JSON to XML using xmljsontransformer.

The XML is then saved in textual format in the process data ("Output" tag) and subsequently I have to convert it to XML always in the process data.

If get the output from the file system, saved by the xmljsontransformer using a FS adapter everything works fine.

It would be great if I could use a new adapter to convert encoded XML directly from the process data.

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
How will this idea be used?

Using the file system adapter to solve the problem takes about one minute.

Instead converting directly from the process data to process data would be much more fast.
