Zak,

You'll want to use the xpath document() function--it allows you to refer to additional, external XML file(s). You should be able to find several examples of usage on the Net.

Hello all. I need some help with XSLT and understanding how I can
solve my problem. I have a set of 4 files, which are sampled below:

-- Job.xml--
<job id = "12"/>
<job id = "22"/>
<job id = "32"/>

-- Task.xml --
<task id ="1">
    <job ref = "12"/>
</task>
<task id ="2">
    <job ref = "22"/>
</task>
<task id ="3">
    <job ref = "32"/>
</task>

-- MyTasks.xml --
<mytask id = "1">
    <task-ref id="2"/>
    <task-ref id="3"/>
</mytask>
<mytask id = "2">
    <task-ref id="2"/>
    <task-ref id="3"/>
</mytask>

-- Configuration.xml --
<conf>
    <mytask-ref id = "1"/>
    <mytask-ref id = "2"/>
</conf>


The ref tags indicate the ids of the elements to use in the appropriate files. Here is what I wish my output to look like:

<conf>
    <mytask id = "1">

        <task id ="2">
            <job id = "22"/>
        </task>
        <task id ="3">
            <job id= "32"/>
        </task>

</mytask>

<mytask id = "2">

        <task id ="2">
            <job id = "22"/>
        </task>
        <task id ="3">
            <job id= "32"/>
        </task>

</mytask>

</conf>

============ END OUT =================
Can anyone give me any pointers on how to acheive this ?
