Subject Cocoon/Hippo get external xml
Date Fri, 04 May 2007 13:28:25 GMT

I want to get some data from an xml using <xsl:value-of
select="document(file.xml)/parent/..etc"> The only problem is that my xml
files are in
C:\hippo-repository-1.2.10\slide\content\files\default.preview...etc and my
page.xsl is in C:/site

So in order of document(file.xml) to work, the xml and xsl should be in the
same folder and they are not

I found a way arounf but I don't think it's such a good thing, plus it looks

so instead of having a variable <xsl:variable
select="document(file.xml)/parent.., I created a pipeline that selects that
particular xml document and I now have something like 
<xsl:variable name=a><xsl:apply-templates
and somewhere in the lower part of the page.xsl I have defined a template
which get's the value I want. I don't know if anyone understood. Anyone
knows an easier way to get values from an external document? 10 in advance
