I guess I'm still scratching my head as to why the the second predicate (CodeId) is needed:
since $uh2 already contains all '30DAYPM' CodeId Records current context should be at the new Record elements that contain the filtered node set for '30DAYPM' CodeId elements only, no? That is where I am a little confused.
I can understand your confusion. Although I'm probably not using the right technical terms, I'll do my best to make it clear. When a variable is set to be a node-set, the nodes stay in contact with the document; they don't become independant. Any Xpath operation on a node from the variable is performed on the node in it's context of the document.
Suppose a variable $foo contains just the 'bar' element of this input XML document: <root> <test/> <foo/> <bar/> </root>
Also, I wanted to fit another question in here since you have been so helpful if I could please. I have a perl application that calls two stored procs, each returning multiple result sets. Current I concatenate the multiple result sets from each stored proc into one xml document. Worst case the xml document can get up to 300k in size. Currently, I'm using Xalan to run a stylesheet on that document but I'm wondering if 300k is too big of an xml document for Xalan to transform. So, my question is should I break it up into two parts (two xml documents one from each stored proc call) or are there any limitations with xslt and the size of anxml source document in relation to performance?
I have no experience with optimization of the XSLT transformation process , I'll leave this matter to a guru. What I can say is that the Muenchian grouping gives best performance.
