oracle 9i xml parsing slow
|| My experience is that slow XSLT transformations typically are
|| a result of the user's using inadvertant "//" in patterns. For
|| example, I've seen lots of users do:
||    <xsl:value-of select="//customer/name"/>
|| when what they *REALLY* meant was:
||    <xsl:value-of select=".//customer/name"/>
|| or even worse if what they really meant was:
||    <xsl:value-of select="customer/name"/>
|| You might search your stylesheet for "//" and make sure
|| if you use that anywhere, you're using it correctly.
| Thanks for the tip. we get the transforming time down to
| half second from 12 seconds.

Great news. Major difference!

If you are not already caching the stylesheet for reuse,
that might further shave off time for each "run".

| PS are you going to release a new edition of the 
| book "Building Oracle XML Applications"

I have plans to produce new content to cover the major
new XML database features coming in our Oracle9i **Release 2**
database in 2002, but due to many other pulls on my time,
it's hard to estimate when that material might be coming out :-)
