IMPORTANT: The XSL off-the-shelf component is for backward compatibility only. Use the USXSL internal component instead.

The XSL Off the Shelf component offers three methods to extract data from an XML document with INVOKE statements.

xsl.node - retrieves a node from an XML document.

xsl.value - retrieves a value from an XML node.

xsl.apply - applies an XSL transformation to an XML document.

The XSL component table offers an easy query interface on XML documents. The XML document specified in the XMLDOC column is transformed into a partial XML document by the operation specified in the second, XPATH column. This operation can be an XSL transformation or an XPath.

For more information, refer to the internal description of the component.
