[en] Is there any C/C++ like if/else/else if and switch-case alternative in LT

I’m looking for an alternative to an if-else and a switch-case ladder like the C language in LT. Although it’s not C, it’s just XML. Also need a counter like a while and a for loop, how can I do that here in an XML file.
I know there are options, but the options are not explicitly clear and at least not controllable like a C code.

P.S. I know there is an <antipattern>...</antipattern> but I’m not talking about that.

There are no loops or ifs in our XML. You’ll need to implement your rule in Java, see “Adding new Java rules” at
