Re: Saxon for windows?
I want to thank to everybody who took part in this interesting discussion (overslept by me in my geographic location). The results of this discussion are clear to me: it would be inefficient to run an xslt processor as a background process and pipiline the results by capturing them. More than inefficient, it would be dangerous to run an XSLT processor as part of a *generally available* web service (I can only smile envisioning the kinds of creative DOS attacks that would be possible). Lastly, as a spoilt Windows desktop user who has an excellent (although XSLT 1.0) IDE with a one or two - click capability to run any of 10 different XSLT processors, including Saxon 8.x and Saxon.NET, I would never use any command-line in the background or any ws beast. When Saxon.NET is released it will accept as input the .NET System.XML XMLDocument, XPathDocument,... etc. and again will be able to produce as output native .NET objects, which is the main fact justifying the ".NET" in its name. Better than this will be only an XSLT 2.0 processor written in and for the .NET platform (e.g. written in C#). Cheers, Dimitre Novatchev.
