Subject RE: Use of XML Catalog with Ant (xslt task) - request for example
Date Fri, 23 Aug 2013 16:11:00 GMT


Regarding the first issue - Saxon's built-in catalog handling - I already know how to do this.
 When I call Saxon from a Java task I pass all of  -x, -y, -r, -u.

Regarding the second - Saxon from within Ant's xslt task - I have been advised that it isn't
really possible with Saxon-6 which is the processor needed for DocBook XSL.  The page you've
referenced looks like Saxon-9, so that's not useful for me.

I'm walking in late here, so I may be missing the point.

Have you seen

The first is about Saxon and catalogs, the second is about the problems of getting the ant
xslt task to use Saxon.

When the young man heard this, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
