Hello, first post here so take it easy :)
I have been searching with no luck on finding a solution - hopefully you can help!
I need to reference a xml file and get the value of an element. In my initial xml post, I will send along an ip address, this ip address will be set as a variable in my xsl transform. I need to use that variable to be used to reference the element on the xml document.
sample xml (IP to Alias lookup):
<servers> <ip id="172.22.17.79"> <server>myServer1</server> </ip> <ip id="172.22.17.80"> <server>myServer2</server> </ip> <ip id="172.22.17.81"> <server>myServer3</server> </ip> </servers>
<!--this is the variable set from my xml post --> <xsl:variable name="server1ip" select="/config/server1ip"/> <!-- this is the variable that references the servers.xml doc --> <xsl:variable name="server1ipLU" select="document('servers.xml')"/> <!--this is the select I am having issues with - I need it to return the server value value --> <xsl:value-of select="$server1ipLU/servers[@ip=$server1ip]/server"/>
Let me know if you need more information, I appreciate the help!
