Oh, a book about XSLT, that's really something I could need now for my Work! So, my questions about the XSLT 2.0 Web Development book:
1) What does can XSLT2 do better as XSLT ?
2) are there processor ready for XSLT2 (under linux, since thats the only platform I'm using?)
3) Something else about xslt : I've got a Problem, when extracting commentaries from an xslt file. I don't know why, using : <xsl:select="task/comment()">
<xsl:value-of="."/>
</xsl:select>
only extracts the first comment is under <task>. Why? And how can I change that ?

1) I answered this question in another thread:

https://coderanch.com/t/126820/XML/Power-XSLT

2) Yes, use Saxon 7.* or 8.* (http://saxon.sf.net)

3) To access each comment under task, use either

<xsl:template match="task/comment()">

or

<xsl:for-each select="task/comment()">

Note: the exact XPath expression in the select attribute may depend on where you use the for-each, e.g. in a template with match="task" you only need select="comment()".

3) oh, I wanted to write <xsl:for-each> in my sample. I didn't take care.



the comment template lloks like that :



and then... even then using <xsl:for-each>, and I don't know why, xslt is only extracting the first commentary from the input file under /project/file/

what I want to do is : extract all comments from an ant build-file (these are xml files), and create an html file with anotation for all ant-targets with anotation (thats why I need to extract the commentaries) from that xml document - a little bit like javadoc.
do you know what is wrong in this code ?

Thanks

Dmitry,

do you have any recommendations on designing XML schemata which make the resulting XML more suitable for XSLT processing? Is there such a thing as a well-formed XML file some pieces of which cause problems or even can not be processed with XSLT? Thanks.

Daniel: <xsl:for-each select="."> iterates only once, probably it's not what you have in mind. Make a template with match="comment()", and then inside the /project/target template, call it thus:

<xsl:apply-templates select="comment()">

No need to do any for-each; this will run the comment template on all children of the current node for whom the value of of comment() is true, i.e. for all comments.

Pradeep: in fact most XSLT implementations are written in Java: Saxon, Xalan, XT, jd-xslt...

Dmitry: XSLT is a programming language, so the question of "what XML is best for XSLT" has only one answer: that depends on how you program your stylesheet. The only requierement is that the source is well-formed so it can parse; other than that it's up to you. Your starting point is the structure and meaning of your data; design both your schema and your XSLT to best fit the data, not each other.
