Subject RE: XSLT transformation
Date Fri, 05 Aug 2005 09:26:14 GMT
Thanks to everyone's help I believe I'm getting closer to getting this
working...darn...I didn't realize transforming XML in Cocoon could cause
such a problem!  I've now changed my code to:

 private void generateDocumentToSAX(String queryResults)
      XMLReader parser = XMLReaderFactory.createXMLReader();
      InputSource inputSource = new InputSource(new
    catch(Exception e)
      m_resultMessage = "Unable to get parser: " + e.toString();

And I get this error in the sitemap.log:

Unable to get parser: java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: The
TransformerHandler is not serially reusable. The startDocument() method
must be called once only.

I think this might be happening because I pass in XML to the java class
transformer (containing the above method) which finds/creates the
startDocument element in the startElement method, and then the parser in
the method above creates another startDocument element, which is
confusing the saxon xslt transformer? I'm confused here now - if the
purpose of a Cocoon transformer is to take in some XML, change it, then
spit out the changed XML, why are the xlst (saxon, xalan) transformers
complaining about duplicated startDocument elements? Sure you can use a
parser to create Sax events within a transformer java class which
extends the AbstractSAXTransformer class?

Thanks again,
