Hi:
I have the following xml snippet --
<abc:configuration xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://oracle.com/xmlns/abcst/configuration configuration.xsd" locale="en" webcache="false" rmi="true">
<started status="true"></started>
<server></server>
..
....
</abc:configuration>

I need to convert this to the following xml:
<abc:configuration
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://oracle.com/xmlns/abcst/configuration configuration.xsd" webcache="false" useMgmt="true" metadata="true">

<drillOutDir></drillOutDir>
<started status="true"></started>
<server></server>
.....
</abc:configuration>

I have the following xsl, that converts the initial snippet to the resultant but i observed that the <started> element occurs before the <drillOutDir> element. How can I change my xsl to achieve the above xml in the exact order?

<xsl:template match="abc:configuration">
<xsl:copy>
<xsl:copy-of select="@*[local-name() != 'rmi' and local-name() != 'locale']"/>
<xsl:attribute name="useMgmt">
<xsl:text>true</xsl:text></xsl:attribute>
<xsl:attribute name="metadata"><xsl:text>true</xsl:text></xsl:attribute>
<xsl:apply-templates/>
</xsl:copy>
<xsl:text></xsl:text>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="server">
<xsl:element name="drillOutDir">
</xsl:element>
</xsl:template>

Please help.
Thanks.

I have come to a point using the xslt in which I can get the "order" of the nodes preserved ie the "started" element occurs before the "drillOutDir" element but the attributes nodes for the started element are not preserved. Its skipped.
The current xslt looks like --

<xsl:template match="abc:configuration">
<xsl:copy>
<xsl:copy-of select="@*[local-name() != 'rmi' and local-name() != 'locale']"/>
<xsl:attribute name="useMgmt">
<xsl:text>true</xsl:text></xsl:attribute>
<xsl:attribute name="metadata"><xsl:text>true</xsl:text></xsl:attribute>
<xsl:apply-templates>
<xsl:sort select="boolean(self::server)" order="descending"/>
</xsl:apply-templates>
</xsl:copy>
<xsl:text></xsl:text>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="server">
<xsl:element name="drillOutDir">
<xsl:value-of select="abc:configuration/drillOutDir"/>
</xsl:element>
<xsl:element name="started">
<xsl:copy-of select="@status[. = 'true' ]"/>
<xsl:value-of select="../abc:configuration/started"/>
</xsl:element>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="abc:configuration/started">
<xsl:apply-templates/>
</xsl:template>

If I change this xslt to remove the started element from the server node and have a tranform for it separately then I do not even get the started node in the output xml.

What changes can I do to the above xslt in order to get
started node as in
<started status ="true"></started>
instead of what I m getting now ie
<started></started>

Thanks much.
