If the stylesheet compiles successfully in one environment and not in
another, then a quite likely cause is that the relative URIs in the
include/import declarations aren't being resolved correctly.

You haven't called setSystemId() on the StreamSource, so the system doesn't
know the base URI of the main stylesheet module, which it needs to resolve
the relative URIs.

As well as fixing this, you need to look into the question of where the
error messages are being sent. If necessary, write your own JAXP
ErrorListener to intercept the messages and display them somewhere useful.
