Subject Saxon as the default XSLT procesor
Date Fri, 02 Jan 2004 08:16:58 GMT

2 recently threads make me think about the topic of the thread. AFAIK
Cocoon does not try to stick on any product but Jetty performs better than
another fact is Saxon better than Xalan:

The license is compatible with Apache since we are already distributing a
small version of jetty inside Cocoon.

Saxon is Mozilla Public License 1.0. It is an OSI aproved license too. But
I am not sure if it is compatible with ASF license:


If the MPL 1.0 is ASF compatible then can we include Saxon as part of
Cocoon? AFAIK it will deliver better performance that for sure all the
users will welcome.

I understand that Cocoon project is not sticking on any 3rd party product
from another project, but I think is very important enhance the user
experience by default to the best products we can use in each area. This
is why I made a similar question somedays ago about the default XSP

I appreaciate the replies from Vadim and Stefano about my request of
changing the XSP compiler topic. They helps me understand that eclipse
compiler was the currently best choice right now.

Please note I am not requesting to remove Xalan nor close the door to
Xalan. I am just requesting to include Saxon since it performs better and
seems to have less bugs.


Best Regards,

Antonio Gallardo
