Description Dave Pawson 2008-04-17 00:18:49 UTC
Xinclude, http://www.w3.org/TR/xinclude/ is the modern way of partitioning an XML file.

Normally processed by the xml parser such that the expanded document is then
fed to the next stage of processing. Xerces parser includes such processing.

Please could this be added to the xslt task.
Saxon (http://saxon.sourceforge.net/) supports xinclude via command line options.
Many OS projects use docbook for their documentation. Docbook v5 now supports

-x and -y cmd line options relate to the parser. -r is for the catalog resolver, which
is another very useful feature for XSLT.

Java equivalent task is shown below.

TIA, DaveP

Comment 1 Stefan Bodewig 2008-11-24 08:51:34 UTC
the -x to -r options would be very Saxon specific and should be dealt with in Saxon's own Ant task (I think there is one since Michael Kay talked about it on ant-dev).
