XSLT Transformation

This type of transformation specifies the parameters and location of an XML document that the edited XSLT stylesheet is applied on. This scenario is useful when you develop an XSLT document and the XML document is in its final form.

To create an XSLT transformation scenario, use one of the following methods:
  • Use the Configure Transformation Scenario(s) (Ctrl + Shift + C (Command + Shift + C on OS X)) action from the toolbar or the Document > Transformation menu. Then click the New button and select XSLT transformation.
  • Go to Window > Show View and select Transformation Scenarios to display this view. Click the New Scenario drop-down menu button and select XSLT transformation.

Both methods open the New Scenario dialog box.

The upper part of the dialog box allows you to specify the Name of the transformation scenario and the following Storage options:
  • Project Options - The scenario is stored in the project file and can be shared with other users. For example, if your project is saved on a source versioning/sharing system (CVS, SVN, Source Safe, etc.) or a shared folder, your team can use the scenarios that you store in the project file.
  • Global Options - The scenario is saved in the global options that are stored in the user home directory and is not accessible to other users.

The lower part of the dialog box contains several tabs that allow you to configure the options that control the transformation.
