Good Night Ranchers !

You know the cool thing about my job is... That I get to learn so Many Incredible Things! It's awesome, The Bad thing is, the deadlines are usually ridiculous. And I've been asked to do something I haven't done before, and it's supposed to be simple, yet I'm still in trouble.

I want to Transform this:

Into This:

By using This:

But Somehow All I get out of the transformation is this:


What Am I doing wrong?

I feel I just need a little push here to get me going. I don't know where my biggest mis-conception here lies.

Hope you guys can Help me out.

Best Regards,

Hi There Gamini !

I tried your solution, and I'm not sure what to comment about it. It actually outputs:

JoseCampana (In FireFox)

Am I understanding XSL Functionality correctly?

Is it possible to get an XSL Transformation to Print an XML?, not just tag values.

I mean, I'm totally lost But, when I open my xml with XSL applied to it... it should show exactly this XML in the Browser:

If it's not much of a trouble, Could you please teach me how to do it?

Have a nice day,

Well, first of all don't use a browser to examine your output. Use a plain ordinary text editor. Gamini's code should do what you want (except I would simplify it a little bit, like this:)

Hey There Paul !

You Guys were Right. That XSL Does Work correctly ! I decided to test it using WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit's XSL Debugger, and there it does output the desired XML.
However I'm perplexed at knowing that I can't use a Browser to see How an XSL affects an XML. I would like to know which text Editor do you use to work in these cases.

Thank you very much. You guys saved my life once again.

Good Luck!
