Transforming XML with XSLT

This Example shows you how to Transform XML with the XSLT in a DOM document.



Transforming XML with XSLT


This Example shows you how to Transform XML with the XSLT in a DOM document. JAXP (Java API for XML Processing) is an interface which provides parsing of xml documents. Here the Document BuilderFactory is used to create new DOM parsers. Some of the methods used in code given below for Transforming are:-

Source source = new StreamSource("Document2.xml"):-creates a Streamsource.StreamSource is a class that acts as an holder for a transformation Source in the form of a stream of XML markup.

Result result = new StreamResult(System.out):- creates a result.StreamResult class acts as an holder for a transformation result.

TransformerFactory factory = TransformerFactory.newInstance():-TransformerFactory is a class that is used to create Transformer objects. A TransformerFactory instance can be used to create Transformer and Templates objects.

Xsl code for the program generated is:-

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
"" version="1.0">
  <xsl:output method="html" indent="yes"/>
  <xsl:template match="girish">
  <xsl:template match="roseindia">
  <xsl:value-of select="@key"/>=
  <xsl:value-of select="@value"/>

Xml code for the program generated is:-

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
  <name Girish="Gi">
  <name Komal="Ko">newsTrack
  <name Mahendra="Rose">Girish Tewari

About 5 years late... but the final line should read: transformer.transform(source, result); and not: transformer.transform(xsl, result);

typo in example

transformer.transform(xsl, result); xsl should be replaced by source

This is wrong

Where we are applying source here? instead of transformer.transform(xsl, result); it should be transformer.transform(source, result);

your code example

Thanks for posting your example here. But the source code doesn't work. Looks like the following line: transformer.transform(xsl, result); needs to be transformer.transform(source, result); Thanks

Small mistake

Line "transformer.transform(xsl, result);" should be "transformer.transform(source, result);" Otherwise great, thanks.

wrong example

you need to change: transformer.transform(xsl, result); by transformer.transform(source, result); Best regards, TOni

Should be transformer.transform(source, result);

Your code is mistaken

In order to make your code work, you should change the following line: transformer.transform(xsl, result); for this one: transformer.transform(source, result);

The transformer.transform(..) is incorrect.

transformer.transform(xsl, result); should be transformer.transform(source, result);

There is an principal error in last line: transformer.transform(xsl, result); There instead should be : transformer.transform(source, result);
