Hi Andrew,

Lazy evaluation does seem to cause a few problems, you don't step
through code but jump around it as various variables get evaluated,
then for some reason you are past where you wanted go.  And the PE/EE
versions of Saxon don't seem to work as well as HE - the click-back
feature for example doesn't work.  Maybe George can help here?

Yes, optimizations in the XSLT processor like lazy evaluation may interfere with the debugging experience. Please at least make sure the "Optimization level" is set to 0 (zero) in the Saxon "Advanced options" dialog.
I am not aware of any issues with the functionality that traces back from the result to the source and the stylesheet when Saxon PE/EE is used - just tested this on a sample and it worked ok. It will be great if you can provide a sample to allow us to reproduce and investigate the issue you mention - you can send that directly to me or to support@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Best Regards,
George
