Experts,

How can I process Binary ImageData using Saxon and output a file?  I want to include the filepath in the XML to the image.

Below is my XSLT file, which works perfectly and attached is a sample XML.

<!-- Begin XST Style Sheet -->


<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:saxon="http://saxon.sf.net/" exclude-result-prefixes="saxon" xmlns:fos="java.io.FileOutputStream">
  
  <!-- Indent in the output -->
  <xsl:output indent="yes"/>
  
  <!-- Match the root -->
  <xsl:template match="ProcessImage">
    <Import> <!-- Insert our Import Node -->
      <Archive ConnectionID="1" Name="1"> <!-- Define our Application Connection String -->
        <Document pass="True"> <!-- Statically set documents to pass -->
          <xsl:for-each select="Pages/Page"> <!-- Ignore -->
            <DocFile FileLoc="{@FileName}" /> <!-- Ignore -->
          </xsl:for-each>
          <xsl:apply-templates select="DataArea/Image/Detail"/>
        </Document>
      </Archive>
    </Import>
  </xsl:template>
  
  <xsl:template match="Detail">
    <DocFile FileLoc="C:\SHARE FOLDER\SCANNED FILES\Scan{format-number(position() - 1, '0000')}.tif" /> <!-- Get the Filepath, give it a filename based on its position in the XML -->
    <Fields>
      <xsl:apply-templates select="parent::Image/Header/*[not(self::Count)]"/> <!-- Get Header Data, Ignore Count Node if Present, Apply Templates at bottom of XSL -->
      <xsl:apply-templates select="*[not(self::ImageData)]"/> <!-- Ignore Image Data Node if Present -->
    </Fields>
  </xsl:template>
  
  <xsl:template match="Header/* | Detail/*">  <!-- Match Header OR Detail Child Elements -->
    <Field Name="{name()}" value="{.}" pass="True"/>
  </xsl:template>
  <!-- Get Image Data
  <xsl:template match="ProcessImage">
   <xsl:variable name="img" select="ImageData"/>
   <xsl:variable name="fos" select="fos:new(string($img))"/>
   <xsl:value-of select="fos:write($fos,saxon:base64Binary-to-octets(xs:base64Binary(my-base64-encoded-image)))"/>
   <xsl:value-of select="fos:close($fos)"/>
</xsl:template>
  -->
</xsl:stylesheet>

I changed your code a bit so at least the XSLT is correct and does what you expect.
But I can't get it to work since I somewhere have a second copy of FileOutputStream on my classpath and I can't get that message out
Note that your base64 snippets are not correct too
