Hi,

I need to call a public static method that returns in xslt. I'm using jstl to do the transformation and hence using the jaxp parser which would use XSLTC or Xalan internally.

The way I have the namespacee declaration for my xslt is

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:autn="http://schemas.autonomy.com/aci/" xmlns:myUtil="http://xml.apache.org/xalan/java/com.csa.porter.scat.CategoryUtils" xmlns:java="http://xml.apache.org/xalan/java"
exclude-result-prefixes="myUtil java">

and in side the xslt I have <xsl:value-of select="myUtil:getCategoryName('45.123')"/>

I get an error saying

XPST0017: XPath syntax error at char 39 on line 125 in {...etCategoryName('45.123...}

Cannot find a matching 1-argument function named
{http://xml.apache.org/xalan/java/com.csa.porter.scat.CategoryUtils}getCategoryName()

How can I successfully call anexternal custom java method from my xslt using jstl?

Thank you.

You need to "include" your java class with that function in your XSLT. You can do this using the "xsl:script" instruction. Take a look below for more details.

http://saxon.sourceforge.net/saxon6.4.3/xsl-elements.html#xsl:script

The idea is that you point to the class and declare the prefix that the functions of that class will use.

<xsl:script language="java" implements-prefix="myUtil" src="java:java.util.Date" />

Something that that above. If you're having problems with the xsl:script instruction, look at processor specific methods. For example the saxon processor has a "saxon:script" instruction that does mostly the same thing. Your processor should have one.

Hi,

Thank you for helpful answer. I did solve the problem as you mentioned by adding the script after the namespace declaration

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:autn="http://schemas.autonomy.com/aci/" xmlns:xalan="http://xml.apache.org/xalan" xmlns:myUtil="http://xml.apache.org/xalan/java/com.csa.porter.scat.CategoryUtils" extension-element-prefixes=" myUtil" xmlns:java="http://xml.apache.org/xalan/java"
exclude-result-prefixes="myUtil java">
<xalan:script lang="javaclass" src="java:com.csa.porter.scat.CategoryUtils" />

However I got some errors on the console like

05:43:03,631 ERROR [STDERR] file:///C:/jboss-eap-4.3/jboss-as/bin/jstl:; Line #89; Column #78; org.apache.xpath.objects.XString

05:43:03,663 ERROR [STDERR] file:///C:/jboss-eap-4.3/jboss-as/bin/jstl:; Line #210; Column #40; org.apache.xpath.objects.XString

When I printed the xsl:version, xsl:vendor and xsl:vendor-url, I got

Version: 1.0
Vendor: Apache Software Foundation
Vendor URL: http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j

I need to use xslt 2.0 but Saxon 9 he does not support calling the java methods from the xslt directly.

Could you please help me in how I could use xslt 2.0 but still be able to call the java methods?

Thank you.
Saraswathy.
