The open-source XSLTProc distributions consist of a pair of Java Servlet web applications supporting a model to manage the risk of running arbitrary XSLT stylesheets. The default installation demonstrates its application as a simple client that invokes an XSLTProc service, one supporting metadata rendering stylesheets. In practice, though, this service can be used to support XSL stylesheets of any kind, not just metadata crosswalks.

The XSLTProc code in the CVS repository is divided into modules for ease of retrieval.

The modules are:

  1. xsltproc – A J2EE webapp to create a risk-controlled XSLT processor web service
  2. xsltdelegate – A J2EE webapp to create a union catalog and centralized front-end to a network of XSLTProc installations. (Not yet available. See the contact information below for details.)

CVS usage note: The CVSROOT should be set to userid@pubserv.oclc.org:/home/CVS/oai/cvsroot
