Hi,

I have an assignment to transform one XML file to another one.
I have both, input XML file and output XML file.
I'm supposed to write an XSL file.
I obtained some guidence through searching on net.
now I can try out coding for XSLT, but being a newbie at XSLT,
still can not figure out what set-up I need to generate the output XML.
Is there any tool or IDE available which does this task?

(not sure if i get you right) you need an xslt processor/parser to parse an xml file with xslt. if you are searching for an ide to develop xslt you could check out altova xml spy (free 30days trial) http://www.altova.com/products/xmlspy/xml_editor.html . or any other xml-editor with xslt parser. if you search for a parser that you can implement into your own application just google for "xml parser" and you will find free parsers. i once used SAXON ( http://saxon.sourceforge.net/ )
is this what you meant?

Thanks Lukas and Roseanne

I need to write only XSL file for a project which uses parser programatically,but has to be tested before it is used.

From your reply, it's clear to me that I need an editor like XML spy.
