New XSLT 2.0 engine

August 1st, 2005

Hey,

Just read in Altova’s newsletter that they have released a free XSLT 2.0 engine, called AltovaXML. This means that there is now an alternative to Saxon 8, and it’s always good to have alternatives :). It also means increased application support for XSLT 2.0. As a bonus, it is Schema-aware as well (Saxon is, too, but not the free version).

For the backbase.com website, I created the infrastructure that generates the content using XSLT 2.0 templates. The source documents are XHTML 2.0 (with some extensions), which are then transformed to XHTML 1.0 + BXML using the XHTML output method and numerous other XSLT 2.0 features such as multiple output files and many new XPath 2.0 functions.

Thanks for covering Altova, it’s a great product, I have used it for a number of years but have chosen to migrate to Liquid Technogies http://www.liquid-technologies.com/xml-editor.aspx, it’s also great for data binding and more than matches Altova on feature sets. Can anyone offer any feedback on this company before i commit to a corporate licence?
