Subject Very basic SAX question
Date Thu, 04 Apr 2002 15:26:54 GMT
Hello folks,

I know that Cocoon2 uses a pipeline of SAX events all the way through
the processing pipeline. Is this also true for the XSLT stage? Or does
the transformer have to wait until the stream is fully there and start
transforming only then?

I am asking, because in XPATH there are forward-referrals such as the
following-sibling axis. And when an element is referred to, that has not
yet arrived on the stream, what is the transformer to do?

Or did I misunderstand the SAX pipeline Cocoon2 uses and in fact at
every stage every component has to wait until the stream is complete?

Thanks for any pointers,
