RE : Grouping upon various attribute values

xsl group by attribute
Well, here are my results:

1. group-by="string-join(gesamtMenge/filter/@*, '|')"

It worked very well, but the ordering issue is still open. In my case, the xml
is computationaly created, and ordering of attributes should be maintained

2. group-by="concat(gesamtMenge/filter/@aufAttribut, '|',
gesamtMenge/filter/@typ, '|', gesamtMenge/filter/@wertStruktur...)"

Doesn't solve my problem: I get the "A sequence of more than one item is not
allowed as the first argument of concat()". This might be due to the element
structure of the given nodeset -> the grouping element can contain more than
one child element where the grouping key is applied.

3. group-by="f:all-attributes(gesamtMenge/filter)"

I get the same issue as 2.

4. Nested groups technique :

I think this can not solve my problem, because attribute sequence is variable.
Isn't it?

Thank you for your help

Regards from the "cheesy" land ;-)

There's no direct support for composite grouping keys in xsl:for-each-group.
The simplest solution is to form the composite key yourself. The following
looks promising:

group-by="string-join(@*, '|')"

but is wrong, because the result depends on attribute order. If you know
what attributes you're interested in, use

group-by="concat(@aufAttribut, '|', @typ, '|', @wertStruktur...)"



<xsl:function name="f:all-attributes" as="xs:string">
  <xsl:param name="node" as="element()"/>
    <xsl:for-each select="$node/@*">
      <xsl:sort select="namespace-uri()"/>
      <xsl:sort select="local-name()"/>
      <xsl:value-of select="."/>

The other approach is nested groups:

<xsl:for-each-group group-by="@aufAttribute">
  <xsl:for-each-group select="current-group()" select="@typ">
    <xsl:for-each-group select="current-group()" select="@wertStruktur">
