You just need to use that class and call its method:

BasicXsl.xsl(inFilename, outFilename, xslFilename);

Later on, you can make those file output streams into other kinds of streams (web-related ones for instance) but get that working first

Just build a simple class with a Main and place the call (as described by CEHJ) in there would probably be the easiest.

Alternatively, take that sample code and add a Main to it, and call it from there.

Going on your earlier questions, you need to be calling it from a servlet as a bean. Change the streams into the appropriate ones for a web response and appropriate to getting the xsl as a stream server-side. As mentioned, getting working as an app first will help you with the stream logic.

Change the code as below, and call it from your jsp using:

<%
   BasicXsl.xsl("my.xml", out, "my.xsl")
%>


    import java.io.*;
    import org.w3c.dom.*;
    import org.xml.sax.*;
    import javax.xml.parsers.*;
    import javax.xml.transform.*;
    import javax.xml.transform.dom.*;
    import javax.xml.transform.stream.*;
   
    public class BasicXsl {
        // This method applies the xslFilename to inFilename and writes
        // the output to outFilename.
        public static void xsl(String inFilename, Writer out, String xslFilename) {
            try {
                // Create transformer factory
                TransformerFactory factory = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
   
                // Use the factory to create a template containing the xsl file
                Templates template = factory.newTemplates(new StreamSource(
                    new FileInputStream(xslFilename)));
   
                // Use the template to create a transformer
                Transformer xformer = template.newTransformer();
   
                // Prepare the input and output files
                Source source = new StreamSource(new FileInputStream(inFilename));
                Result result = new StreamResult(out);
   
                // Apply the xsl file to the source file and write the result to the output file
                xformer.transform(source, result);
            } catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
            } catch (TransformerConfigurationException e) {
                // An error occurred in the XSL file
            } catch (TransformerException e) {
                // An error occurred while applying the XSL file
                // Get location of error in input file
                SourceLocator locator = e.getLocator();
                int col = locator.getColumnNumber();
                int line = locator.getLineNumber();
                String publicId = locator.getPublicId();
                String systemId = locator.getSystemId();
            }
        }
    }
