Subject MX4J Stylesheets repository
Date Wed, 31 Jul 2002 10:06:11 GMT
Hello all,

one good thing about MX4J is that its output is modifiable via XSLT 
stylesheets. For example, we'd like to create a new tab "Statistics" for 
our sar-applications, where we show some graphs and numbers.

Now, the problem currently is that the stylesheets are packed into the 
mx4j-tools.jar under mx4j/adaptor/http/xsl/*

Every time we want to modify one of the stylesheets, we have to unjar 
the file, make our changes, jar it and restart Phoenix. This is 
time-consuming and interrupts a service. Plus, whenever we update MX4J 
to a new version, we have to manually merge our changes into the new JAR.

To solve these problems MX4J has a feature to specify a directory as 
stylesheet repository and one can set a caching-parameter to false, so 
that stylesheets are checked for changes and reloaded as necessary. Example:

ObjectName processorName = new ObjectName("Server:name=XSLTProcessor");
server.createMBean("mx4j.adaptor.http.XSLTProcessor", processorName, null);

// set it to use a dir
server.setAttribute(processorName, new Attribute("File", 

// set not to use cache
server.setAttribute(processorName, new Attribute("UseCache", 

Would it be possible to enable these features in Phoenix?
