Hi all,

I figured out the hard way that you can't overload functions in xslt.  In Java
this would typically be no problem as the parameter signature is different.
The only option that comes to mind is to autogenerate 1 crazy big function
which does typechecking on the parameter in a choose construction and returns
elemenet.  Just double checking if there is a better way.

Thx in advance,

<xsl:function name="znapz:getURI" as="xs:anyURI">
  <xsl:param name="element" as="element(maximo:SCRIPTLAUNCHPOINT)"/>
    select="{concat($destinationFolder, '/'SCRIPTLAUNCHPOINT/',
$element/maximo:AUTOSCRIPT, '.xml')}"/>

<xsl:function name="znapz:getURI" as="xs:anyURI">
  <xsl:param name="element" as="element(maximo:SECURITYRESTRICT)"/>
     select="{concat($destinationFolder, '/SECURITYRESTRICT/',
$element/maximo:APP, '.xml')}"/>
