Re:  <xsl:message terminate="yes"> results in zero byte
Hi Grant ,
I am also facing similar kind of issue ,during transfor if I have
xsl:message with terminate=yes and it is redirected to System.err and
It does not fall as Exception,
Could you please tell me ,How did you manage to get the text value of
xsl:message in Java context.
It would of real help ,if you share your approach on the same.

Sorry, I should have probably posted this at the Saxon forum.  I did
try your solution Mike -

FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(myfile);
transformer.transform(xmlStreamSource, new StreamResult(fos));

which still didn't work to delete the file  Not sure what the issue
is, maybe it's not something with Java.

However, I tried Pete's solution and it worked, the file doesn't get written:

ByteArrayOutputStream bos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
StreamResult result = new StreamResult(bos);

transformer.transform(xmlStreamSource, result);
if(bos.size() > 0)
FileOutputStream("./JournaltoGoogleXMLFiles/google." + an + ".xml"));
   return false;
