Couldn't get your first example to work. I'm using javax.xml.transform
for the actual transformation and Eclipse tells me that for-each-group
is an unkown xsl element.

Your other example works just fine tho :-)


That means you are using an XSLT 1.0 processor. Since you are using Java, consider upgrading to XSLT 2.0, it's a major step forward and makes grouping a breeze (i.e., it adds xsl:for-each-group and many other features, like regular expression matching, non-xml data retrieving, multiple result documents). See for the Java XSLT 2.0 processor Saxon (others are AltovaXML, non-java, non-opensource, and Gestalt, Eiffel, open source).
