I have a question regarding reading records from a database in XSLT.
I have the following xml file:
<files> <file db="db1" name="/record/2233/21/1/12_mmish" /> <file db="db2" name="/record/2233/21/2/34_ytrrm" /> </files>
And the name attribute is a key in a mysql table. What I want is the value of the key. So, I can use "select recordvalue from Record where keyvalue = '/record/2233/21/1/12_mmish'" to get the record value from the table.
The record value is actually in xml format like this: <xml> <db1> <title> title1 </title> </db1/> </xml>
What I need is to read the whole value in my stylesheet using something like <xsl:variable name='record' select="document(@name)/xml"/>. But since the name attribute is not the path to a xml file, I cannot use this method.
Can anyone give me some suggestions on how to approach this or some information I can know more about using queries in my stylesheet?
Thanks a lot.
