RE: linkedin discussion of "can you sell an XSLT?"
Interesting discussion. I has similar concerns around compiling and archiving as mentioned by folks. But is compiling really that much of a barrier? One could take a couple tacs. First, ship the XSLTs with a processor, that way you have closer to a self contained unit. Second, you could hit 80% of folks by going with a pretty small number of processors. I work with a lot of different clients and I could hit virtually all of them with 4 processors or less. Not perfect, but what in this world is? -----Original Message----- From: Michael Kay [mailto:mike@xxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Friday, June 05, 2009 4:37 AM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: linkedin discussion of "can you sell an XSLT?" > > JVM byte-code or .NET IL code both are not processor-specific. > Fortunately, there is no need for XSLT byte-code :) I can't imagine anyone compiling XSLT to byte-code that doesn't need the support of a processor-specific runtime library, so the compiled code will inevitably be tied to a particular XSLT processor.
