Subject [ANNOUNCE] (X)Emacs mode for XSLT processing
Date Wed, 13 Dec 2000 17:37:22 GMT

If you're using (X)Emacs for doing your XML and XSLT development, you
may find the following (X)Emacs minor mode very handy. It allows you
to run the XSLT processor of choice on an (X)Emacs buffer and display
the results in a different buffer. Just enter few keystrokes and you
get the results.

The currently supported XSLT processors are Saxon 5.x and 6.x and
Xalan 1.x. Although it is not only an XSLT processor, but a complete
XML publishing framework, Cocoon 1.x is also supported.

This mode works by spawning off a separate process which runs in a JVM
the Java BeanShell ( For each XSLT
processing request, (X)Emacs will send a request to this process to
execute. Because the JVM is started and classes loaded only once, the
JVM start-up overhead is eliminated and the execution is very fast.

You can check-out this (X)Emacs minor mode at:
