I have updated the open-source XML file listing task that I have written for Apache Ant. This is useful, in particular, when you want to apply an XSLT stylesheet to a number of files together (not individually). You use the file listing task to create an XML file listing containing the file URLs, then you load the files into your XSLT stylesheet using the URLs and the XSLT "document()" function.

Version 1.0 created an XML file listing with an XML hierarchy that mirrored the directory hierarchy. The new version 1.1 has two other options. You can produce a flat listing without the directory hierarchy, and you can create a "collection" XML listing that works with the "collection()" function in the Saxon XSLT/XQuery engine.

For details and examples, please visit the download site. I hope you will find it useful.


Cheers, Tony.
