[xsl] Saxon SQL extension

Been following the discussion on the Saxon SQL Extension with interest and
decided to give it a try as this will fit into a project I'm working on at the

If this is off topic I do apologize in advance.

I'm using the latest saxon8.jar ( from the command line and the XSLT and
XML files are from the Saxonica site.

I get the following error message:
java -jar saxon8.jar books.xml sql.xsl

Warning: at xsl:stylesheet on line 9 of file:/C:/RBI/sqlTest/sql.xsl:
  Running an XSLT 1.0 stylesheet with an XSLT 2.0 processor
sql:connect is not available
Connecting to jdbc:odbc:test...
SQL extensions are not installed
Processing terminated by xsl:message at line 28 in sql.xsl

In the example it doesn't use the jar file but a call to a Java class (I guess
as am not Java savvy). Now I'm guessing that is my problem or that I need the
commercial version of Saxon to run this extension.

Any help in getting this example up and running will be greatly appreciated.
