Hi - this conversation is really interesting to me. I have been struggling
with porting my web-app to different j2ee compliant servlet
containers/application servers. It is a pain for me.  I was wondering about
using perl to do/trigger the transform process. Everybody has a CGI bin :)
What does it take to make perl do what xalan (or saxon)/xerces do for me
now?  I was wondering if there was something like  a perl cocoon. I have
been lurking for a few days on what seems to be the main perl/xml mailing
list (perl-xml@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx). I have seen one implementation of
a xsl processor built in perl but the author says it is slow - haven't tried
it yet(

Are there definite leaders in this area?  Where is a good place to look for
info on perl and XSL/XML?  Does anyone have some simple examples?

How easy/likely is it to install something like Sablotron on a server not
under your control? Say, for example, the only thing you have access to is
the docroot and the cgi-bin thru FTP/SSH?

thanks for any information!
