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. -- Uche Ogbuji Fourthought, Inc. http://uche.ogbuji.net http://fourthought.com http://copia.ogbuji.net http://4Suite.org Articles: http://uche.ogbuji.net/tech/publications/
