Java and XSLT

Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Released: September 2001

The power of XSLT is its ability to change the structure or format of any content that can be converted to XML. Java and XSLT shows you how to use XSL transformations in Java programs ranging from stand-alone applications to servlets. After an introduction to XSLT, the book 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.

Java and XSLT 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.

The book covers:

  • Introduction and Technology Review
  • XSLT--The Basics
  • XSLT--Beyond The Basics
  • Java Web Architecture
  • Programmatic Interfaces to XSLT Processors
  • Using XSLT with Servlets
  • Discussion Forum Implementation
  • Advanced XSLT Web Techniques
  • Testing, Tuning and Development Environments
  • WAP and WML
  • XSLT and Wireless Examples

Comments about O'Reilly Media Java and XSLT:

I am new to XML. However, this book helps me to rapidly understand XML, XSLT, the connection between XML & Java. Nice book!!

ps. I suggest the author to put all book classes in a jar file, just like any other o'reilly books do.

Java and XSLT Review

By Terry Johnson

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media Java and XSLT:

I wanted to make Java applications talk to humans - through their browsers, PDAs and other client software - and Java and XSLT really showed me how to do it. It's easy to understand, even for a Java novice, and well laid out... you will learn a lot from this book.

Using XSLT and Servlets also solves the age-old browser-compatibility problem in a simple and effective way, and Chapters 8 and 10 give a good pointer towards this - though a specific example servlet to do it would be nice, maybe that would be taking the fun out of learning and experiementing!
