If so, we can use XSLT as a bridge between Web services... I just did a test. I created a Web service on my local machine which consumes XML. I created a stylesheet that did SAXON:output to that service. When I ran it SAXON gave me an error message, "Failed to create output file http://localhost:8080/servlet/sample" xalan also bombed. It gave me an error: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException I am very disappointed. This means that it's possible to input from a Web service (using document()), but it is not possible to output to a Web service. In my mind, I see this as a major inconsistency between the input capability and the output capability. Does anyone know of what is planned for XSLT 2.0? I believe that there will be a built-in output element, correct? Will it be able to do an HTTP POST to any consumer of XML (such as a Web service)? /Roger XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
