Hi,

In a servlet I currently create an XML file, translate it using XSL and output the result back to the browser.

Rather than create a physical file I want to just stream it.

I need an example of doing this to use as a guide for my app.  I am using JAXP, so please also do this for your example.

Thanks,

Matt

Hi:

This example works fine using XALAN 2.2 instead JAXP:

Transformer transformer =
       TransformerFactory.newInstance().newTransformer(
         new SAXSource(XMLReaderFactory.createXMLReader(), new InputSource(new ByteArrayInputStream(xsl_data))));
     transformer.transform(
       new SAXSource(XMLReaderFactory.createXMLReader(), new InputSource(new ByteArrayInputStream(xml_data))),
       new StreamResult(out));

You can create your XML on the fly, use getBytes method from it string format.

"out" can be a ByteArrayOutputStream. Then put content-type to your JSP via response.setContentType and then write out.getBytes() to the user.

Bye.

J.

Hi,

I had left it open, hoping that an answer with the JAXP parser would come.  I do appreciate userguin's answer though so points should go there.

Thanks,

Matt
