Using EXSLT Templates example

I am looking for an example of using the EXSLT functions (http://exslt.org/dates-and-times) to add times. Using VB.Net 2003.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<time>
      <now>2004-05-17T11:12:00</now>
</time>

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
xmlns:date="http://exslt.org/dates-and-times"
exclude-result-prefixes="date">
<xsl:import href="http://localhost/exslt/date.xsl" />
   <xsl:template match="/">
   <xsl:variable name="now" select="date:date-time()"/>
   <xsl:variable name="rolloff" select="date:add($now,'PT30M')" />
      Current date is <xsl:value-of select="$now"/>
      Rolloff is <xsl:value-of select="$rolloff"/>
   </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

---------------------------------------------
It seems to die on the import. I have tried using a file:///c:/path , but that would not work either.  Just looking for a simple XSL template to add the date/time. There are other XSLT functions I'd like to use also, so I didn't want to just write the java to do this.

Oleg Tkachenko wrote a good article on implementing EXSLT in .NET last August:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/XML/BuildingXML/XMLStylesheets/default.aspx?pull=/library/en-us/dnxml/html/practexslt.asp

it's quite thorough.  Also, the EXSLT.NET community has nice ready-made assemblies for you!

http://www.gotdotnet.com/workspaces/workspace.aspx?id=201eb290-5bf0-4452-9bf7-d21d39268f36

One other thing to remember, in some cases when you use import, or when you use the document() function to access external resourcse, the XSLT transform must run with elevated privileges.  Make sure your code access security is correct...

Mike -
Thanks for the response. I have looked at both of those articles and have the EXSLT.NET library, however, I cannot use it in this particular instance (can't change the app the does the transform).

It looks like the EXSLT.org templates *should* be able to be included, and that's what I think that I need.

I used the caspol -security off  and had no effect.

You may have to manually copy the code into your own templates, then.  or copy the named templates separately.

Can you import *any* template?
