in thread XSLT vs Templating, Part 2

I've also added code that uses XML::XSLT , which surprising is VERY bad at least as I've used it (did I use it wrong? I couldn't get a pure XML DOM document to work with it...)

Heh, I discovered that there was an evil interaction between XML::Generator::DBI and XML::Handler::BuildDOM - I have sent patches to both Matt and Tim ;-}

I'll update this later with an example of how you might do this when I get a minute

Update: Matt has applied a fix to XML::Generator::DBI and this code now works as billed :

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use XML::XSLT; use XML::Generator::DBI; use XML::Handler::BuildDOM; use XML::DOM; use DBI; my $ya = XML::Handler::BuildDOM->new(); my $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:Informix:tdcusers",'','',{ChopBlanks => 1} +); my $generator = XML::Generator::DBI->new( Handler => $ya, dbh => $dbh ); my $style =<<EOFOO; <?xml version="1.0"?> <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="" versi +on="1.0"> <xsl:output encoding = "iso-8859-1"/> <xsl:template match = "select"> <html> <head> <title> Test </title> </head> <body> <table> <xsl:for-each select="row"> <tr> <td> <xsl:value-of select="prefix" /> </td> <td> <xsl:value-of select="code" /> </td> <td> <xsl:value-of select="ctext" /> </td> </tr> </xsl:for-each> </table> </body> </html> </xsl:template> </xsl:stylesheet> EOFOO my $stylesheet = XML::XSLT->new($style); my $sql = 'select * from text_codes'; my $dom = $generator->execute($sql); $stylesheet->transform(Source => $dom); $stylesheet->toString();

You will obviously want to use your own database and an appropriate stylesheet :)
