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.

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.

If I get it right then you are converting your resultset to XML....
If that the case why don't you query the database with a Order By clause??? It will return the data in sorted order and hence your XML will automatically a sorted one...
there will be no need to put it in a temp directory as well....
