What's wrong with doing it in XSLT?
See Mike Kay's post: if your DB access causes side effects, you are in trouble.
My motive for not using anything but XSLT and Java is simply a matter of consolidating an unnecessary plethora of tools to depend on.
Sounds exactly like "Golden Hammer" to me. XSLT has its strenghts but also weaknesses. I wouldn't write a C compiler or orbital calculations with XSLT.
