XML Transformation error

I am using XSLT to transform a XML into another XML and running into the following error.

javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException: Could not compile stylesheet
at com.filter.XMLFilter.transformXMLFile(
at com.filter.XMLFilter.Run(
at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)
at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(
at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(
at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(

and goes on..........

I have been trying to resolve this from morning but of no use. Could someone help me in resolving this.

Here is my transformation code

TransformerFactory tFactory =TransformerFactory.newInstance();
StreamSource stylesource = new StreamSource(stylesource);
transformer = tFactory.newTransformer(stylesource); // This line is giveing the exception
DOMSource source = new DOMSource(document);
File f = new File(origFileName + "-transform.xml");
StreamResult result = new StreamResult(f);
transformer.transform(source, result);

Does your code REALLY say

"StreamSource stylesource = new StreamSource(stylesource);"


I suppose that might compile, and if it does I suppose it's equivalent to

"StreamSource stylesource = new StreamSource(null);"

That would definitely cause the transformer to fail.

I pasted it wrong.

The line actually is

StreamSource stylesource = new StreamSource(stylesheet);

Any idea why it is failing?

I agree. Here's the link:
