XSLT 2.0: Sorting

As conformance testing and fixing progresses for the Intel SOA Expressway XSLT 2.0 processor, I’ll continue examining new XSLT 2.0 features. In my previous post, I talked a bit about grouping, which puts items from a sequence into groups by key value or by relative position. With the right input, that might also sort the sequence, but typically that won’t be the result. So in this post I’ll talk about a close relative, sorting.

XSLT: Now with Stricter Typing

XSLT 2.0 has many new and very useful features for stylesheet developers. In my next few posts, I’ll discuss these new capabilities and examine the benefits they offer.

One of the first improvements to XSLT we had to consider when designing our new processor is the rich type system. Actually, the types are at the core of XPath 2.0, and XSLT 2.0 builds upon that foundation.

XSLT 2.0 from Intel on the way

Is Intel still interested in developing XML and XSLT products? After the discontinuation of the Intel XML Software Suite earlier this year, many seem to have concluded that Intel has left the game for good. In fact, in a recent XML mailing list discussion about slow adoption of XSLT 2.0 in browsers, Intel was cited as an example of an XSLT vendor that has left the market.
