Subject Adding variable no of <param> elements to <xslt> task
Date Fri, 08 Sep 2006 11:57:21 GMT

I'm faced with the following situation:

- The stylesheet parameters supposed to be passed to the XSLT processor
  should be configurable from the "outside world", like this

<property name="transformer.xsl.stylesheet.params"
value=",prop.languages=de en fr" />

- I want to provide a macro that creates a bunch of <param> elements
  with name and expression attributes based on the number of comma-separated
  key-value pairs set by the above property (shouldn't be a problem). (The
  number of key-value pairs depends on the stylesheet).

- Later on using the generated <param> elements inside the <xslt> task.
  That's my problem. How can I "copy&paste" the generated <params> in the
  <xslt> task? Is this possible using Ant itself (maybe there's some
  external task available) or do I have to extend the <xslt> task using
  BeanShell code? (In both cases, suggestions are highly appreciated).

I'm currently using Ant 1.6.2, but there probably won't be much difference
to Ant 1.6.5 with regard to the aforementioned item.

Thanks in advance for any info & have a nice weekend,
