I generate the xsl with fop (a framework of apache) and print the date like this...

// get the date and time of system
                      Calendar calendario = Calendar.getInstance();
                       String fecha =  calendario.getCalendar.DAY_OF_MONTH)         + "/" +
calendario.get(Calendar.MONTH) + "/" +
calendario.get(Calendar.YEAR) + ", " +
calendario.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY) + ":" +
calendario.get(Calendar.MINUTE);

 
//Print the variable fecha that contains the system date and time in the foot of the page

dos.writeBytes("<fo:static-content flow-name=\"pie_pagina\" >");
dos.writeBytes("<fo:table>");
dos.writeBytes("<fo:table-column column-Width=\"100mm\"/>");
dos.writeBytes("<fo:table-column column-width=\"95mm\"/>");
dos.writeBytes(" <fo:table-body>");
dos.writeBytes(" <fo:table-row>");
dos.writeBytes(" <fo:table-cell >");
dos.writeBytes("<fo:block font-weight=\"bold\" font-size=\"6pt\"  space-before.optimum=\"10pt\" text-align=\"start\">Fecha: " + fecha + "</fo:block>");                
dos.writeBytes(" </fo:table-cell >");
dos.writeBytes(" <fo:table-cell >");
dos.writeBytes(" <fo:block font-weight=\"bold\" font-size=\"6pt\"  space-before.optimum=\"10pt\" text-align=\"end\">Hoja <fo:page-number/> de <fo:page-number-citation ref-id=\"fin_docto\"/></fo:block>");              
dos.writeBytes("                                               </fo:table-cell >");
dos.writeBytes("                                   </fo:table-row>");
dos.writeBytes("                       </fo:table-body>");
dos.writeBytes("            </fo:table>");
dos.writeBytes("</fo:static-content>");

assuming xslt transforms xml into xhtml, dirty way to do it on the client site would be to put something like this

<SPAN ID=ABC></SPAN><SCRIPT>setTimeout("ABC.innerText=Date()",1000)</SCRIPT>

in the plase where you wand the date in your xslt.

Hi,

there are lot of ways for getting system date.

for example in ur xsl file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16" ?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:ms="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt"
xmlns:sg="http://www.mtsite.com/XSL/Function">
<ms:script language="JScript" implements-prefix="sg">
<![CDATA[

function systemDate()
             {
            
        var d = new Date();
        var date;
        date = d.getFullYear() + '-' + (d.getMonth() + 1)  + '-' + d.getDate();
        return(date);      
               }
]]>
</ms:script>


and call it like form your template as:

<xsl:value-of select="sg:systemDate()" />


Hope it works.


kind regards
vihar
