    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      Name: gm110360 Date: 06/22/2004


      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.5.0-beta3"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0-beta3-b56)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0-beta3-b56, mixed mode, sharing)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows [Version 5.2.3790]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      an XSLT template with match="and" results in the following exception:
      ERROR: 'Syntax error in 'and'.'
      FATAL ERROR: 'Could not compile stylesheet'
      Exception in thread "main" javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException: Could not compile stylesheet
      at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerFactoryImpl.newTemplates(TransformerFactoryImpl.java:824)
      at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerFactoryImpl.newTransformer(TransformerFactoryImpl.java:619)

      match="and" should match an element whoose name is "and". Apparently it is being treated as the logical operator "and" that appears in the "Predicate" part of an XPath location path.
      A similar thing happens with match="or".


      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Attempt to use an XSLT transformation with a template that matches the element "and" or the element "or", such as:
      <?xml version="1.0"?>
      <xsl:transform version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
      <xsl:template match="and"/>
      </xsl:transform>


      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      <xsl:template match="and">
      should match an element whoose name is "and"
      <xsl:template match="or">
      should match an element whoose name is "or"
      ACTUAL -
      ERROR: 'Syntax error in 'and'.'
      FATAL ERROR: 'Could not compile stylesheet'
      Exception in thread "main" javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException: Could not compile stylesheet

      at com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.trax.TransformerFactoryImpl.newTransformer(TransformerFactoryImpl.java:619)


      ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
      ERROR: 'Syntax error in 'and'.'
      FATAL ERROR: 'Could not compile stylesheet'
      Exception in thread "main" javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException: Could not compile stylesheet
