I have an assignment to transform one XML file to another one. I have both, input XML file and output XML file. I'm supposed to write an XSL file. I obtained some guidence through searching on net. now I can try out coding for XSLT, but being a newbie at XSLT, still can not figure out what set-up I need to generate the output XML. Is there any tool or IDE available which does this task?
(not sure if i get you right) you need an xslt processor/parser to parse an xml file with xslt. if you are searching for an ide to develop xslt you could check out altova xml spy (free 30days trial) http://www.altova.com/products/xmlspy/xml_editor.html . or any other xml-editor with xslt parser. if you search for a parser that you can implement into your own application just google for "xml parser" and you will find free parsers. i once used SAXON ( http://saxon.sourceforge.net/ ) is this what you meant?
