The power of XSLT is its ability to change the structure or format of any content that can be converted to XML. This work shows you how to use XSL transformations in Java programs ranging from stand-alone applications to servlets. After an introduction to XSLT, it focuses on applying transformations in some real-world scenarios, such as developing a discussion forum, transforming documents from one form to another, and generating content for wireless devices. The book discusses several common XSLT processors and the TRAX API, paying special attention to performance issues. Although there's a brief tutorial introduction to the XSLT language, the primary focus of the book isn't on learning XSLT or developing stylesheets; it's on making practical use of transformations in Java code.
