Hi Nicola,
You may use xalan from the foundation. If you are conversant with
Java, you may opt for the java implementation of xalan (xalan-j). I use the
java implementation of xalan (xalan-j) found at It is very easy to use the only
requirement is that you have Java installed on your workstation or server,
then you install xalan-j, you'll find installation details from the address
You may then start transforming your xml file(s) against your xsl file(s)
using command line options that you'll pass when calling xalan.

You may call xalan like so.

$JAVA_HOME/bin/java org.apache.xalan.xslt.Process [-PARAM yourparametername
parametervalue [yourparametername2 parametervalue2[..]] -IN
path-to-your-xml-file -XSL path-to-your-xslt-file -OUT

Later you may want to incorporate xml transformation into the application(s)
you write in Java. For this you may very easily use xalan-j. The
site will have a lot of examples on how to achieve this.

Ok Pietschmann, now I've understood.
Under Windows I can use MSXML. Have you some suggestion for a processor
under UNIX/Linux?
