Date Fri, 14 May 2004 13:16:59 GMT
Could you just use a StringBuffer containing xslt and pass it in as an InputSource?

that would be easy for a one off solution but i need more of an API to 
give me the ease of creating xslt dynamically. to do that i will need 
to create a whole lot of classes to represent various XSLT elements. 
That's why i am looking at reusing the xalan templates classes instead 
of creating my own representation.

i have no additional requirement apart from creating stylesheet 
prgrammatically, but i would like to know if there is an API that i can 
use, instead of creating my own.
