Author: Manikandan Surendranath

Can someone tell me how date formating can be done, like I want to transform "1989-06-05" to "June 6, 1989". I would like to achieve this with our using any extentsion functions of java or msxsl. Since I have no idea which xml processor my client is going to use, I want to keep this processor independant.

Hi Manikandan,

Unfortunately XSLT 1.0 doesn't provide a built-in function for that, XSLT 2.0 does.

Still you could write your own "format-date" in pure XSLT.

Hope this helps.
Ivan

Thanks for the response. I have written a template that will format the date to the format I need. Can you just look at this and tell me if this is optimal solution or can it be better.

<xsl:template name="replace-string">
<xsl:param name="text"/>
<xsl:param name="replace"/>
<xsl:param name="with"/>
<xsl:choose>
<xsl:when test="contains($text,$replace)">
<xsl:value-of select="substring-before($text,$replace)"/>
<xsl:value-of select="$with"/>
<xsl:call-template name="replace-string">
<xsl:with-param name="text" select="substring-after($text,$replace)"/>
<xsl:with-param name="replace" select="$replace"/>
<xsl:with-param name="with" select="$with"/>
</xsl:call-template>
</xsl:when>
<xsl:otherwise>
<xsl:value-of select="$text"/>
</xsl:otherwise>
</xsl:choose>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template name="format-date">
<xsl:param name="dateTime"/>
<xsl:if test="string-length(normalize-space($dateTime)) > 0" >
<xsl:variable name="space" select="' '"/>
<xsl:variable name="date">
<xsl:value-of select="substring-before($dateTime,'T')" />
</xsl:variable>
<xsl:variable name="year">
<xsl:value-of select="substring-before($date,'-')" />
</xsl:variable>
<xsl:variable name="temp">
<xsl:call-template name="replace-string">
<xsl:with-param name="text" select="substring-after($date,'-')"/>
<xsl:with-param name="replace" select="$year"/>
<!--<xsl:with-param name="with" select=""/>-->
</xsl:call-template>
</xsl:variable>
<xsl:variable name="day">
<xsl:value-of select="number(substring-after($temp,'-'))" />
</xsl:variable>
<xsl:variable name="month">
<xsl:value-of select="number(substring-before($temp,'-'))" />
</xsl:variable>

<xsl:choose>
<xsl:when test="$month = 1">January</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$month = 2">February</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$month = 3">March</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$month = 4">April</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$month = 5">May</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$month = 6">June</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$month = 7">July</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$month = 8">August</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$month = 9">September</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$month = 10">October</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$month = 11">November</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$month = 12">December</xsl:when>
</xsl:choose>
<xsl:value-of select="concat(' ',$day,', ',$year)" />
</xsl:if>
</xsl:template>

I would add a test in replace-string to avoid infinite recursion with an empty string

<xsl:when test="string-length($text) &gt; 0 and string-length($replace) &gt; 0 and contains($text,$replace)">

and change the variable assignements to use select attribute

<xsl:variable name="year" select="substring-before($date,'-')"/>

Hope this helps

How would one go about using XSLT 2.0 within Stylus Studio XML Enterprise 6 Release 3? I'm mapping two XSDs and need to perform myriad date transformations. I'm evaluating this tool for a much larger effort.
