Re: Measuring the complexity of XSLT stylesheets
Totally agreeed. XSLT is easy in 95% of case and could be solved by "tempalte-based function". That's why we can developWhen you step back from that mentality and simply design your XML and XSLT in such a way that there is no need to climb up and down the tree to process the data then XSLT is never complex. It may take a little getting used to the style and as such seem a bit complex but after you just "let go and let God" as the saying goes then your mind adjusts and it simply makes sense. It seems to me that just about the time you find yourself having to write complex code to make something work in XSLT is right about the time you need to rethink things and realize you are doing things the hard way (the procedural side of your brain if you will) and that there is a much simpler approach that will work twice as efficient if you block the procedural line of thinking and embrace the template-based functional side of your brain
