Subject RE: Xalan3 XSLT 2.0 XPath 2.0 support?
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2007 12:54:37 GMT
We really would like to see the xpath functions in xslt 2.0. We have
considered moving to Oracle XML to get XSLT 2.0 support.

I would even be willing to put in some Company/Spare time to implement some
of these functions.

Hi, Johannes. 

I'm cross-posting to both mailing lists to make sure we have broad coverage
for this discussion.  Everyone, please follow up on xalan-j-users.

Speaking as a committer on the Apache Xalan project, I'd certainly be
interested in seeing an XSLT 2.0 implementation take shape here.  I'd like
to find out how much interest there is from others in seeing an open source
XSLT 2.0 implementation from the ASF.  If you're interested in such an
implementation (as a user), please respond and let us know which features
you're most interested in.  And conversely, I would also like to hear from
any users who are satisfied with an XSLT 1.0 processor, and not much
interested in migrating to XSLT 2.0. 

Feel free to respond either on the mailing list or to me directly, in
private.  I'll summarize the results of this informal polling in a week or

For the benefit of the list, I thought I should mention that you told me in
a private e-mail that you later realized it was a developer on a different
XSLT processor (not an Apache Xalan developer) who said they had no interest
in XSLT 2.0.
