saxon fail to find xslt functions
I have this function in an xsl doc - I don't think i can use template match because it needs to run on all dates, to convert CCYY-MM-DD dates into YYMMDD, and there are a lot of date nodes in the xml document with various names. <saxon:function name="bcp:fixDate"> <saxon:return select="concat(substring(.,3,2),substring(.,6,2),substring(.,9,2))"/> </saxon:function> i'm calling it like this: <xsl:value-of select="bcp:fixDate(bas:InvoiceDate)"/> the xsl, bcp, saxon and bas namespaces are defined in the <xsl:stylesheet> element and if I don't call the function, transformation works ok. If I do call the function, i get this error from saxon: The URI http://www.bcpsoftware.com/schema does not identify an external Java class Of course it doesnt, it's the namespace identified by the bcp: prefix I'm attaching to the function. According to my saxon documentation "In a function call where the function name has a non-null namespace URI,the system searches first for a matching saxon:function definition, then for an external Java function" So why is it looking for an external Java class when there is a matching saxon:function definition? I'm not using EXSLT func: namespace because I don't think InstantSaxon 6.2.2 supports it. ______________________________________________________________________ Dominic Blythe Programmer BCP Ltd BCP House, 151 Charles St, Stockport, SK1 3JY UK t: 0161 355 3000 f: 0161 355 3001 e: dominic.blythe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx _____________________________________________________________________ /* It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice */ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
