The Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT) specification
provides for morphing XML documents into other XML documents. An XML document
can also be transformed into a format other than XML such as HTML or text. An
XSLT processor is required for an XSLT transformation. Some of the commonly
used XSLT processors include Xalan-Java, Oracle XSLT Processor for Java and
the JAXP XSLT transformer. A stylesheet is used to transform an XML document.
The elements of a stylesheet are in the XSLT namespace
With XSLT an XML document may be converted to another XML/HTML/text document.
The elements and attributes in an XML document get modified with an XSLT
In this tutorial some of the commonly required transformations are discussed.
Having a Java application to transform an XML document with XSLT is a
A J2EE application deployed in the WebLogic server may be debugged in the
Eclipse IDE with the remote debugger provided by Eclipse. Without a debugger
the error message has to be obtained from the application server error log to
debug the application.
With the remote debugger provided by Eclipse, exception breakpoints may be
added to the application file to debug. When an application is run in
WebLogic and the application generates an error, the application gets
suspended and the Eclipse IDE Debug perspective displays the error. In this
tutorial we will debug a WebLogic Applicat... (more)
Cloud computing has been a boon to conserving resources by providing a farm
of servers that are concurrently used by multiple users. Cloud computing
precludes the requirement for setting up per-user servers. In a recent
InformationWeek survey of business technology professionals, most have
indicated a preference for cloud computing for storage, archiving, and
disaster recovery, for business applications, servers, raw computing power,
dedicated data center space, databases, and specialized IT services such as
security, management and compliance.
Cloud computing may be public or ... (more)
This article compares Document Type Definition (DTD) and XML Schema elements.
Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) developers use DTDs and schemas in J2EE/XML
applications. When a DTD for an XML document is provided and validation with
an XML Schema is required, the DTD-to-XML Schema conversion creates an XML
Schema document corresponding to the DTD document.
A DTD defines the structure of an XML document and defines a document's
element types, subelement types, and the order and number of each element
type. It also declares the attributes, entities, notations, processing
This tutorial discusses the simpleType and complexType XML Schema structures
and their corresponding representations in an XML document. XML Schema is
used as the basis of an XML document structure, and some of the XML
technologies, such as JAXB, are based on XML Schema.
An XML Schema is an XML-based representation of the structure of an XML
document. XML Schema supports data types and namespaces; a DTD does not. In
this tutorial, the simpleType and complexType structures used to represent a
XML document will be discussed.
SimpleTypes are custom da... (more)
