Tranformning multiple XML docs to a single XML doc

Good morning,
I have need to take two xml documents and run them through a single xsl document to produce a single xml document.
I am currently using xalan to do single xml document transformation, but do not see anything about multiples. Should I be looking to a different set of classes?

Since your are converting using XSL, you can try using document() function which could help you load external xml document.
Here a sample that I cut and pasted from another site.
Two xml files
file 1
<a name="a1">3</a>
<a name="a2">5</a>
<a name="a3">2</a>
<a name="new">1</a>
file 2
<a name="a1">1</a>
<a name="a3">1</a>
<a name="a4">2</a>
required output
<a name="a1">4</a>
<a name="a2">5</a>
<a name="a3">3</a>
<a name="a4">2</a>
<a name="new">1</a>
xsl file:
version="1.0"><xsl utput method="xml" indent="yes"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:for-each select="document('dp-f1.xml')/fa/a|
<xsl:sort select="@name"/><a name="{@name}">
<xsl:value-of select="sum(document('dp-f1.xml')/fa/a[@name=current()/@name]|
