Hi, below is a jsp file thats supposed to take an xml file and write it to an xsl file but I dont think its working, am I missing anything?, thanks.

<%@ page import = "java.io.*"%>
<%@ page import = "org.w3c.dom.*"%>
<%@ page import = "org.xml.sax.*"%>
<%@ page import = "javax.xml.parsers.*"%>
<%@ page import = "javax.xml.transform.*"%>
<%@ page import = "javax.xml.transform.dom.*"%>
<%@ page import = "javax.xml.transform.stream.*"%>
   
    <%

        // This method applies the xslFilename to inFilename and writes
        // the output to outFilename.
        String inFilename = "C:\\Documents and Settings\\Adrian Ron\\Start Menu\\Programs\\Apache Tomcat 4.1\\xmlfile.xml";
        String xslFilename = "xsl";
       // Writer out;
       
            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();
            }

i'd suggest not ignoring any exceptions so you know if something has gone wrong.

e.printStackTrace();
out.println("Error: "+e);

check those exceptions, i'm guessing one is getting thrown
if so, the exception should give u an indication of what the problem is.

perhaps it's not finding the xsl file.

Thanks for that, im working off this: http://www.w3schools.com/xsl/xsl_transformation.asp. The server will be accessing the xml file on the clients computer and transforming it to html on the clients computer. Here is what I came up with. Can I just put the xml style sheet in a tomcat directory, is this line ok: <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="localhost:8080\cdcatalog.xsl"?>. Ill increase the points.

//the xml document
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='ISO-8859-1'?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="localhost:8080\cdcatalog.xsl"?>
<Table>
<Product>
<Name>xml</Name>
<Type>isa </Type>
<Amount>file</Amount>
</Product>
</Table>

////the style sheet
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

<xsl:template match="/">
  <html>
  <body>
    <h2>My XML File</h2>
    <table border="1">
    <tr bgcolor="#9acd32">
      <th align="left">Name</th>
      <th align="left">Type</th>
  <th align="left">Amt</th>
    </tr>
    <xsl:for-each select="Table/Product">
    <tr>
      <td><xsl:value-of select="Name"/></td>
      <td><xsl:value-of select="Title"/></td>
      <td><xsl:value-of select="Amount"/></td>
    </tr>
    </xsl:for-each>
    </table>
  </body>
  </html>
</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>
