jon rossSubject: SS dies on xsl files loads
Author: jon ross
Date: 29 May 2007 07:53 AM
I have a large xsl project that I'd like to profile w/ SS. the XSL files include numerous includes to other XSL files.

I can't set a root directory in SS (lame) so it seems I need to write a URIReslover to load the includes to perform a transform.

Here is the rub: I try to run the "generate java code" stub which always crashes SS. It seems when it tries to generate the stub it needs to compile the XSL first, which it can't because none of the includes resolve. Catch 22.

Any way to make this work?

Hi Jon,
why can't the XSL load the included files? How does it reference them? Could you post your stylesheet (or send it to stilus-field-report@progress.com if you want to keep it private)?

Thanks,
Alberto

The XSL file(s) are huge but here is the crux of the problem:

Here is an include line from one of the xsl files:

<xsl:include href="/xsl/architecture/Language.xsl"/>

Where the file actually lives on my file system is "/usr/home/jr/work/projectA/verisonB/xsl/architecture/Language.xsl"

for a various set of reasons (all very bad) I don't want to run a local webserver to resolve the URI's

Perhaps the problem is the leading / in the file spec,
which makes the reference absolute based on the root
directory?

<xsl:include href="/xsl/architecture/Language.xsl"/>

href's are resolved relative to the current file's location.

If the current file is in /usr/home/jr/work/projectA/verisonB,
then you should just use href="xsl/architecture/Language.xsl". If
it is in /usr/home/jr/work/projectA/verisonB/xsl, then you should
just be using href="architecture/Language.xsl".

You may also use OASIS Catalogs to remap physical locations, for
when you need a file to reference an absolute location, but want
to test or divert certain file lookups to another source.

The catalog seems like exactly what I want, except I don't think SS will use them to look up URI for xsl:includes. At least I can't get it to work.

I'd rather not change the path's in the XSL files. Part of the point of this is to render the production files unaltered.

Hi Jon,
have you tried using NTFS hard links to make the /xsl directory point to /usr/home/jr/work/projectA/versionB/xsl?

You do understand that if you reference your files as
href="/xsl/architecture/Language.xsl"
by the use of the leading slash you are explicitly telling it to
look in the root directory, right?

So changing this would not be a bug fix, but would actually
introduce a problem where none exists.

The proper way is to use relative addressing, not using the
leading slash. We understand your reluctance to change things,
and that's why OASIS catalogs and junctions (on NTFS)/links (on
Unix/Linux) were invented, but still if you expect a
root-directory-based path to reach something in a relative
subdirectory, you are not using URIs properly.
