XSLT calling Java methods

How can I make calls to Java inside my xslt code? I have the following needs:
1) Include Java Date
2) Pass some variable values to be included in the xml document that is generated by the xslt.
Any pointers would be helpful.

Most transformers allow you to pass in parameters:
In the transform you initialise this parameter at the top of the stylesheet, and if you pass in a parameter it will be overriden with whatever you passed in.
<?xml version="1.0"?> <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0"> <xsl:param name="key">dd-mm-yyyy</xsl:param> <xsl:template match="/"> <xsl:apply-templates/> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="someMatch"> <h1>The value of key is "<xsl:value-of select="$key"/>"</h1> <xsl:apply-templates/> </body> </html> </xsl:template>
In terms of calling
from within xslt...erm...Why, architecturally, would you want to be in that position? Can't help on that one, I'm afraid.

Hi, Payam Fard
Here are two examples I wrote several years ago. I think it will give you a head start.
If you meet any problems, please let me know.
