I see.  I forgot.

Not at all cheeky.  Different people have different requirements.  I
disagree with your group's opinion of Python's maturity.  It's well
proven in enterprise settings (ask Google, for example), but I also
understand that some perceptions are slow to change.

Unfortunately, I only know of my Python implementation and a .NET
implementation of ISO Schematron, so I can't help with a Java offering.
I've heard there is supposed to be an experimental Java impl based on
Jaxen (jaxen.org)), but I've never actually found an actual project home
page for such a schematron component.
