Firstly, passing a general-purpose DOM as input to
Saxon is not very efficient; Saxon has to strip the DOM and build its own tree
structure. If possible, build the tree as Saxon DocumentInfo objects (using
either tree model). You can do this by using the JAXP parser interfaces with
Saxon as your chosen DocumentBuilderFactory, or you can do it (more simply) by
using a JAXP identity transformation. The Saxon DocumentInfo object implements
the JAXP Source interface, so you can supply it directly as input to the
transform method, or return it from a URIResolver, and you can also supply it
directly as a parameter to the stylesheet.
possible to supply a third-party Document object as the source of a
transformation, but not as a parameter.
message "The value is not a node-set" implies that you have supplied a parameter
value which Saxon accepted, but treated as some data-type other than node-set
(possibly "external object", which is a catch-all). If you supplied a DOM
Document object that was not a Saxon DocumentInfo, you should get the message
"Result is a non-Saxon DOM Node". What is the actual class of your value

Subject: [saxon] DOM parameters via
I have a stylesheet which takes two filename parameters, which it then
converts to node sets via document().
I've written a JAXP
framework that generates the contents of these
files as DOM Document
objects. I would like to pass these objects
directly to the stylesheet to
save the expense of me serializing the
objects to file and SAXON reading
the files to build node sets.
I tried to do this naively with this
sort of code:
xformer is my transformer and ads is a Document. When I call
xformer.transform(), I get a warning, "The value is not a node-set".
Which is true.
Is there any way to pass a Document to SAXON when
called in this way?
Or do I have to convert the Documents myself before
passing them as parameter.
I'm using SAXON 6.5, If possible I'd like
maintain XSLT processor
independence, but getting this working is more
Thanks in advance,
