Hi list, 

I'm working on transformations on XMI files generated by Borland
Together 6.2. This modeling and code generation tool generates XMI files
with the following namespace declarations: 

<XMI xmi.version = '1.1' xmlns:UML = '//org.omg/UML/1.3'>

My XSLT transformation file starts with: 

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";

The 'uml'-namespace is used for the output document. Further, I use the
xalan XSLT processor to process the transformation. Now, xalan outputs
the following error message, when processing the input file with my XSLT
transformation file: 

SystemId Unknown; Line #135; Column #43; XSLT Error
javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: A location step was expected
following the '/' or '//' token.

When I omit the double slash in the namespace declarations of the input
XMI document and the transformation file, e.g.
xmlns:UML='org.omg/UML/1.3' the transformation works fine, no error is

Are there any ideas how I could get the transformation to work without
modifying the XMI file generated by Borland Together 6.2? 

Thank you in advance, best regards,

Jan Rihak
