I guess this is one bit of what the REST debate over on xml-dev is about - if we confine our use of Web Services to URL-type parameter lists then we can use document() for queries or updates. But clearly that's not what people use XSLT for - if it was, we'd all be asking for "text" as the default value for xsl:output/@method, wouldn't we?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
So let's hope we get an output option which is compatible with those Web Services which require a POST rather than a mere GET.
