This particular XML pipeline:

  • Aggregates two XML input sources
  • Validates the output of the XQuery using XML Schema and then either
    • Terminates if the validation fails or
    • Passes the output to an embedded pipeline for additional processing
  • Using XSLT, transforms the embedded pipeline's output to HTML
  • Using XQuery, transforms the same output to PDF using XSL-FO processing
