The SAXON package is a collection of tools for processing XML documents.
The main components are:
- An XSLT processor, which implements the Version 1.0 XSLT and XPath
Recommendations from the World Wide Web Consortium, found at and with a number of powerful
extensions. This version of Saxon also includes many of the new features
defined in the XSLT 1.1 working draft, but for conformance and portability
reasons these are not available if the stylesheet header specifies
- A Java library, which supports a similar processing model to XSL, but allows
full programming capability, which you need if you want to perform complex
processing of the data or to access external services such as a relational
So you can use SAXON with any SAX-compliant XML parser by writing XSLT
stylesheets, by writing Java applications, or by any combination of the two.
