Re: Adding element to xml snippet using xslt
I did include <xsl:apply-templates/> as follows, but it does not yield the 'drillOutDir' node in the output xml. <xsl:template match="abc:configuration/drillOutDir"> <xsl:element name="drillOutDir"> <xsl:value-of select="abc:configuration/drillOutDir"/> </xsl:element> <xsl:apply-templates/> </xsl:template> That would apply templates to the children of drillOutDir if this template was ever executed, but as you have said, this template is not executed. You need to apply templates to the drillOutDir nodes,by having apply-templates in the template that matches the parent. also as once you do apply templates to this drillOutDir element and so this template is executed it will generate a drillOutDir element <xsl:element name="drillOutDir"> (which you could more easily have written as <drillOutDir> but then use as content the string value of this elements grandchild of the same name, drillOutDir. Is that really the structure of your input? that abc:configuration contain drillOutDir which contains abc:configuration which contains drillOutDir ?
