Hi,

I am using XSLT to transform a XML into another XML and running into the following error.

javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException: Could not compile stylesheet
at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerFactoryImpl.newTemplates(TransformerFactoryImpl.java:824)
at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerFactoryImpl.newTransformer(TransformerFactoryImpl.java:619)
at com.filter.XMLFilter.transformXMLFile(XMLFilter.java:183)
at com.filter.XMLFilter.Run(XMLFilter.java:101)

at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.java:25)
at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:585)

and goes on..........

I have been trying to resolve this from morning but of no use. Could someone help me in resolving this.

Here is my transformation code

TransformerFactory tFactory =TransformerFactory.newInstance();
StreamSource stylesource = new StreamSource(stylesource);
transformer = tFactory.newTransformer(stylesource); // This line is giveing the exception
DOMSource source = new DOMSource(document);
File f = new File(origFileName + "-transform.xml");
StreamResult result = new StreamResult(f);
transformer.transform(source, result);

Does your code REALLY say

"StreamSource stylesource = new StreamSource(stylesource);"

???

I suppose that might compile, and if it does I suppose it's equivalent to

"StreamSource stylesource = new StreamSource(null);"

That would definitely cause the transformer to fail.

Paul,

I pasted it wrong.

The line actually is

StreamSource stylesource = new StreamSource(stylesheet);

Any idea why it is failing?

Regards
