Retrieving param values in xslt

I was wondering if it was possible to retrieve paramaters which were set through the following code below in the xslt? If yes how would I do that

//Transformer.setParameter(String name, Object value)
Transformer.setParameter("test", new String("test"))

I'm trying to set a parameter based on the user and then use this help xpath find the appropriate node.

Thank you for your time

You would declare each one as a top-level <xsl:param> element in your XSLT code, like for your example:The name attribute, in this case "test", would be the first parameter of the setParameter call.
I agree. Here's the link:
