Failed To Compile Stylesheet

Here should go questions about transforming XML with XSLT and FOP.

Failed To Compile Stylesheet

Fri Feb 04, 2005 7:55 pm


I've been using xmlSpy but thought I'd try the Oxygen plug-in for Eclipse hoping your debugger was better. Although it may very well be, I haven't been able to use it yet because my stylesheet won't compile! It says I have 7 errors but doesn't list them out. Since I've had the same stylesheet working before.. I think its simply a problem with my include statements. I'm still sorting out the use of Eclipse for Java versus using it for XML/XSL and probably don't have my package structure right or something. Like.. what does an XML project reference do for you anyways? Anyhow, I was REALLY hoping that Oxygen was going to shed some light on these pesky dumb problems that can take alot of time to ferret out.

Is there a way to debug the compilation of a stylesheet? It would be nice to step through and see an error as it tried to include another template instead of it just going and trying to do it on its own and tallying up all the ones it can't find! Thanks very much, Matt

Hi Matt,

On Eclipse the errors are reported in the Problems View as problem markers. If you are not familiar with Eclipse then I recommend getting the standalone version of oXygen, it is a lot easier to work with.
