There is another way.

If you look into the main sitemap, you'll find a comment in the
'map:transformers' definitions that defines the transformer type "xsltc"
(note the 'c' at the end!). If you uncomment that, you can use XSLTC and
Xalan at the same time in your application.

This is mostly useful when you have nonstatic xalan extensions that
XSLTC is not currently able to call.

Ah, you could have SAXON working at the same time as well.

You might even think of doing stuff like this:

 <map:generate src="..."/>
 <map:transform type="xalan" src="..."/>
 <!--map:transform type="xsltc" src="..."/-->
 <!--map:transform type="saxon" src="..."/-->

and uncomment the one you like (this might be useful to perform
benchmarks on the exact same system with the exact same overheads).

The method that Gianugo suggests, instead, changes the TrAX factory and
this means that *every* xslt operation performed by Cocoon will default
to the XSLT processor that is defined there.

Hope this helps.
