Re: java methods vs XSL templates
> i however think that writing a java method is a more elegant way of doing > this ,as java code is precomplied and would take less processing time. You are only talking of the time taken to execute <xsl:value-of select="concat( substring($x,7,2),':', substring($x,5,2),':', substring($x,3,2))"/> which isn't going to be very long, and may or may not be quicker than going through the interface to extension functions in another language. Also it's completely portable which a java extension won't be. If your stylesheet is doing anything at all interesting the time taken to do the interesting bits are likely to dwarf the time spent here whatever method you use aren't they?
