Open-source java XSLT 2.0 implementation? [closed]

Question!

I'm currently looking into using XSLT 2.0, but I cannot find any open-source java implementations (Saxon-B seems to fit the bill, but isn't schema-aware).

Am I missing something?



Answers

The only one is Saxon-HE:

Saxon-HE

The W3C hosts an online version of it for testing:

W3C Jigsaw XSLT 2.0 Service

And there is JSFiddle like version as well:

xsltransform.net

And the Frameless project hosts a JavaScript version of it:

XSLT Fiddle

There's also an App Engine project which uses it:

XSLT App Engine Test Harness

Other than that, there's an incomplete Xerces extension which implements XPath 2.0:

Xerces XPath 2.0 Extension

An Eclipse extension which implements XPath 2.0:

WTP XPath2.0 Processor

An incomplete Xalan-J branch which partially implements XSLT 2.0:

Some prototype work for XSLT 2.0 support in the Xalan-J Interpretive processor went on in 2003, but then trailed off. That prototype work is still available on the xslt20 branch http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/xalan/java/branches/xslt20/, but since then nobdy has stepped forward to carry on that initial prototyping, and the Xalan PMC hasn't put in place any plans for XSLT 2.0 support.

As well as a server-side implementation of Saxon-CE which can run on Nashorn/Avatar.js:

xslty

Are you sure you really need a schema aware processor? It might help find errors in the stylesheets quicker but the cost might outweigh the benefit (both in terms of money, and license-wise).

Saxon-SA is the schema-aware version of Saxon B. It includes the open source Saxon B in full (published under the Mozilla Public License). It's only the "schema-aware" stuff which is closed source, so most of it is still free software (though only as in free speech..).

Yes, I'm answering my own question from 2.5 years ago:

I haven't tried it yet, but I just stumbled upon Eclipse PsychoPath, which is (according to the docs) a XPath 2.0 XML Schema Aware processor that passes 96% of the XPath 2.0 test suite (version 1.1M1).
