in reply to XSLT vs Templating?

Masem, Cool question ++. I'm currently using the following:
  • Xalan XSL-T engine from the Apache group, C++ version works, but the Java one doesn't like me.
  • Instant Saxon, from Micheal Kay, Java standalone job.
  • Matts excellent XML::LibXSLT along with other XML tools.

I have found that the Perl interface in LibXML and LibXSLT are pretty powerful and fast, and seem to work okay, they can even hadle XSLT jobs that MSXML and hence XML Spy can't.

For my sins I'm using a home grown Templating system, but I plan to migrate to AxKit, which seems to do everything I could ever want....

On the books front, I have the following:

Good luck whatever you do....

    I've been very impressed with Aaron Skonnard and Martin Gudgin's Essential XML Quick Reference: A Programmer's Reference to XML, XPath, XSLT, XML Schema, SOAP, and More. It's in the same style as an O'Reilly nutshell book. It's very up to date with some handy UML diagrams. The examples are in Java and Visual Basic which is interesting as you can see the same interfaces being implemented in two entirely different languages.

    Still waiting for a hardcore Perl/XML book. :-( Perl's powerful way of handling data structures make it feel to me like the perfect language for working on XML, but Java seems to be doing a very good job of selling itself as THE language for XML.
