OK, I'll try to say it again, please read carefully and try to reply.

1) With the current generator, NOTHING stops you from putting a 
transformer after it in the pipeline and add whatever data to any <day> 
element. If, for instance, you want to add some elements whose content 
is fetched from an SQL database, you can:

- do an XSL-T transformation to insert SQL queries inside <day> elements
- do an SQL transformation to execute those queries

You don't need to write a single line of Java code to do that.

2) If we were to make the CalendarGenerator a transformer, will you 
please tell me what kind of input is this transformer meant to 
transform? Is asking for a simple example too much?
