Hi Erich!

To get a String into a org.w3c.Document you could do the following:

String src = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" ..... ";

DocumentBuilderFactory dbf      = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
DocumentBuilder        db       = dbf.newDocumentBuilder();

org.w3c.dom.Document doc = db.parse(new

Betreff: Trying to transform XML to XSL:FO so I can convert it?

OK, finally got the FopServlet to work, thanks for the help!!!

My next problem is that my XML is not in a file. I will be reading it in
from my database (where its stored as a blob) into a large String. Next I
need to do something like an XSLTransform.transform to apply my XSL to the
XML. What results should be my .FO file. Now I have tried this where the XML
and XSL are files and programatically build the .FO file and this works but
I need help with the following things:

1) Is XSLTransform.transform the best class method to use?

2) XSLTransform.transform accepts for the XML input either a xmlSource
String or a org.w3c.dom.Document .... what I have is the entire XML in a
String. Whats the best way to turn it into a Document?
