Hi, I am working on converting XML files to text files. The JAR that I am aware of to put on the build path is xalan.jar. Are there other JARs needed for performing the task? Please provide guidance. Thank you.

No. And in fact putting xalan.jar on the classpath will do nothing, unless you write specific code to access it. XSLT processing is already built into the standard Java API and has been since Java 1.4, I believe. So the answer to your question is "You don't need any additional jars to run XSLT in Java code."
I agree. Here's the link:
