SORT XML

Medium Priority

Hi Experts,

I have JSP getting XML based on criteria and then parsing it via XSLT.
Is there way to presort by some attribute this XML before parsing it ?

If yes how would it be done and give me some simple example.


Thank you.

Have you looked at the XSLT sort element xsl:sort?

I need to sort it permanently and keep this way before parsing it because I use paging.

It means to get XML then sort it and save sorted in some directory and only then use it.

Commented:
Is this your situation?

1) Batch process XML files to sort, and save sorted files
...time passes...
2) JSP processes pre-sorted XML with XSLT to output (what?  HTML?)


If so, why not:
1) Batch process XML using XSLT to sort and output sorted XML to file.
2) as before...

The problem is that I use paging and sort does not help for the whole result set. So I need to get this XML sorted and kept
in some temp dir and then use it for display using another XSLT.

May be there is a better way ?

Thank you.
