I have a folder that contains subfolders. Within each subfolder is a bunch
of XML files. I want to iterate over all the XML files in all the subfolders. I tried the following and it doesn't work:
<xsl:for-each select="collection('folder/*?select=*.xml')"> <xsl:message> Root element = <xsl:value-of select="name(/*)"/> </xsl:message> </xsl:for-each>
Which XSLT processor do you use/target? What happens exactly when you run that code and "it doesn't work"?
What is the correct way to do this?
If you want real iteration I would suggest to use xsl:iterate instead of xsl:for-each.
But I suspect the problem is with the right argument for the "collection" function. If you use Saxon 9 and
I think you should get all files in "folder" and subfolders. I am not sure whether you want to exclude files directly in "folder".
