I am new to XSLT, but have done a lot using SAAJ stuff and found SAAJ (JAXP etc.) actually really easy to use.


So why XSLT? your advice is welcome.

Decoupling your logic from presentation is a start. Also, since XSLT is an abstraction at this point, it decreases the complexity of your code. If you need to do something that XSLT does, you'd pretty much have to duplicate XSLT's feature set -- not much fun in my book.
