Yes, you need to install java if you don't already have it. You can download the Java Runtime Environment here:

You also need to set your "classpath" variable to point to the saxon??.jar file. If you don't know how to do that, the easiest way to get around that is to replace this:


with the -jar parameter and indicate the path to the saxon??.jar file:

java -jar c:\pathto\saxon??.jar -o output.xml source.xml stylesheet.xsl

Replace ?? with the current Saxon version number that you download.ed.

Thanks for your in time help. I will install it and
will let you know. In order to run this do i have to
install java on my system, or would it work without
installing java on my PC.

I have .net installed on my pc, then should i install
.net version....If yes then what would be the command
(from the command line) for .net??

Thanking you again.I might not be asking intelligent
questions but once i get the push, I will be able to
move ahead:)

To apply an XSLT transformation to an XML document
you need an XSLT
processor. There are many different ones available.

If you install Saxon, for example, then you can
perform a transformation
using the command (from the command line)

and the result will go to output.xml. For a different XSLT processor, the method of invocation will be different.

Subject: [xsl] Looking for some basic guidance

I am new with XML and working on XSLT files. I
need to
transform an XML document to another XML document
with a
different schema, using XSLT. I have included my
xslt file in
XML document. Now where and how do I see my new
xml document
formed? Am i missing any step?Where and how
should i specify
where to save resulting XML document?Do I need to
Install anything?
Kindly guide me at an earliest note, i need to
submit an
assignment and need some guidelines from you as I
am not able
to find proper help from net or maybe I am not
searching at
right places.I did self learning from w3schools
and Dietel's book.

In my XSLT file i m simply transforming one
sub-elment of an
element into an attribute in resulting xml
document and
renaming an elment. If it is successful, I can
continue with
transforming other elements.

Waiting for your reply,
Thanks and Best Regards,
