How big is the XML file, and how are you writing it? Transforming an XML
file in 3-4 times the time it takes to write it seems a reasonable ratio.

You might save a little bit by passing the XML from your application to the
XSLT processor as a stream of SAX events rather than as a source XML file.

With Java processors, the start-up overhead of loading the Java VM and
application classes can be quite high: if you are doing repeated
transformations, make sure you don't incur this for each one.
