Subject RE: Problem with the xsl:import
Date Tue, 25 Apr 2006 12:23:14 GMT

I think you're right. That's pretty much what we had thought.
Also we had thought of writing our own resolver, we've done this to solve
other (non-web) issues, but we were hoping tat there might be a better way
of doing this.

Thanks for your help.

Here's the problem. xsl:import is purely an XSL thing. So it doesn't 
necessarily do anything similar to how the servlet spec does things.

So when you have <xsl:import href="cowbell.xsl" /> - cowbell is retreived in

a relative style with respect to its context. (which could be file, or

Your webapp lives in a context. But xsl knows nothing about context, or 
context as defined by the servlet spec. So asking for 
http://localhost/aaem/xsl/routesummarycontent.xsl is the same as a
asking for it. On a multi-hosted machine - yup - this will bring you 
interesting results.

So what you probably need is your own javax.xml.transform.URIResolver. You 
probably need to write your own implementation of it and have tomcat use it.

(A topic for which I have done neither)
