Subject Re: [VOTE] JEXL and a release

Hi Jake,

Maybe transformation is the wrong word... DOM aware templating? I'm only 
concerned with producing a manipulated copy of a template document 
rather than translating between XML dialects.

Transfomations/DOM manipulations are specified by a simple XML-based 
language (probably a misuse of XML, but hey it's easy to parse). 
Elements in the target are referenced in the transformation by their id. 
JEXL is used to extract data from the java data object model to put into 
the transformed result. I use it unsurprisingly to present dynamic web 

OK almost completely unlike XMLC, but it was inspired by XMLC, along 
with Zope Page Templates and XSLT. If my boss lets me and people think 
that there's a need for yet another web presentation technology we may 
open source it.
