Hi List,

I was looking at the following <x:tranformer/> sample : http://www.zkoss.org/doc/devguide/ch12s02s02.html
but i have as yet not found out how the get it working. I think i did not configure it correctly, but i have no clue how to do that. The Transformer resides in zml.jar not? I have this installed.

How do i get it to work?

Regards Huub

Hi i found the answer after studying http://www.zkoss.org/smalltalks/rssxml/

# ZK XML Output

While a ZUML page is requested, ZK parser will use the suffix of this request's URL(e.g. *.zul, *.mil, *.zhtml etc) to choose the right way to generate the response document. And in ZK-2.5.0 we add a new way for parser to handle the request from such client side application which requires a XML over HTTP response. In this demo, this client side application is an RSS reader.

This means that you should add a language-mapping to zk.xml (WEB-INF)
in the example:


Also in web.xml this extension should appear


So for the <x:transformer/> to work you can choose any extension for the ZK page as long as it's configured in this way.

But there is something else,

What is the proposed solotion for including an external XML source? Can the native ZUL namespace be included ?

The following does not work.

<?page contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8"?>
<h:window xmlns:h="http://www.zkoss.org/2005/zk/native">
xml="<book><title>ZK - Ajax without the JavaScript Framework</title><for-who>Web application designers and programmers who wish to implement rich Ajax web applications in the simplest way.</for-who><author>Henri Chen and Robbie Cheng</author></book>" />
<x:transformer xsl="books.xsl" xmlns:x="http://www.zkoss.org/2007/xml">
<h:label value="${xml}"/> || ${xml}

<?page contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8"?>
<label value="OUTPUT"/>
<include src="books.zxml"/>
<h:label value="Enjoy"/>

furthermore, it would be great to support xsl parameters
So i suggest the transformer should at least have three attributes

<x:transformer xslt="http://server/xsl" xml="http//:server/xml" parameters="key=value;key=value" />

I solved our problem by creating a transformer java class of mine own, that works like this
