Java in XSLT

This is my xml file:
<person sex="male">
<street>West Bird</street>
And this is my xslt file :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="">
<xsl:template match="/">
<h2>Personal Information</h2>
<table border="2">
<tr bgcolor="#009995557">
<xsl:for-each select="users/user/person[starts-with(lastname,'Iva')]/..">
<xsl:sort select="username"/>
<td><xsl:value-of select="username"/></td>
<td><xsl:value-of select="person/lastname"/></td>
<td><xsl:value-of select="person/firstname"/></td>
<td><xsl:value-of select="email"/></td>
<td><xsl:value-of select="mobile"/></td>
<td><xsl:value-of select="fax"/></td>

How can I replace this "<xsl:for-each select="users/user/person[starts-with(lastname,'Iva')]/..">" with some java code so that when I type from the output some string it will find the correct user by this string?

Why Java code? Why not just pass the desired string to the transform as a parameter?

Thank you for the answer. Well, because I have to adapt a Java program to it. And I don't know exactly how to do it.
I agree. Here's the link:
