I need to parse a string of pattern, a|b|c|d|e..
I am trying to parse it using tokenize function in xsl.
but, the following exception is given:

javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException: javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: Could not find function: tokenize
at org.apache.xalan.processor.TransformerFactoryImpl.newTemplates(

Let me know if you have any idea.
Also let me know, if there is any other way of parsing the string in xsl.
and what are the includes and version required.

Thanks in Advance

The tokenize function belongs to XSLT 2.0, you cannot use it in the XSLT 1.0 product you are using. If you want to use it, and other XSLT 2.0 functions, you will need to use a transformer that supports XSLT 2.0. Saxon is one, and there may be others.

Or if you want to stick with the transformer you are using now, just google for "xsl tokenize". When I did that I got at least four web pages explaining how to do it.
