Calling java.util.Arrays.asList() won't work

  • James Francis Cerra

    As a test, I tried directly using java.util.Arrays.asList() from saxon:

    select='Arrays:asList("Larry", "Moe", "Curly")'
    <xsl:value-of select="." />

    However, that doesn't work; I get a error message:

    Cannot find a matching 3-argument function named {java:java.util.Arrays}asList()
    Transformation failed: Run-time errors were reported

    According to Sun's Javadocs, this should work. Does anyone konw why it doesn't work? (And yes, this is a trivial problem to workaround - it was only a test).

      The asList() expects a single argument, but you have called it with three arguments. Try passing a single sequence-valued argument:

      Arrays:asList(("Larry", "Moe", "Curly"))

      (not tested)

        That worked. (Odd, since the example was based on the JavaDocs.) Thanks.
