RE: <xsl:message terminate="yes"> results in zero byte
As far as the spec is concerned the state of filestore is undefined after a transformation fails, so this is presumably intended as a Saxon-specific question rather than an XSLT language question. I would imagine that in this situation you have started serializing the output but the first buffer-full hasn't yet been flushed to disk at the time of termination. I've certainly seen this leave empty files on disk (if your transformation had got further it might have left a non-empty but incomplete output file), but I haven't seen problems in deleting such files; presumably the problem is that the process still has a connection open to the file. In your call you've created the FileOutputStream yourself, and Saxon takes the view that if you create the stream, then you should close it after use (Saxon will only close the stream when it has created it itself.) So it might be as simple a matter as closing the stream before attempting the file delete.
