The program needs to handle multiple dynamic XSL stylesheets and for each stylesheet, multiple XML inputs. The problem is that most C/C++ xSlt handlers are interpreters, which XALAN C++ also is. The speed of a Java XSL compiler versus an interpreter isn't even a contest. Right now, we are using libxslt which is also an interpreter/processor. (takes as input, xsl sheet and xml file, runs interpreter through the xsl sheet and applies to xml file). something that could precompile the xsl sheet and then run all xml files through uninterpreted code would obviously be infinitely faster. unfortunately, no such thing seems to have been developed for C/C++, even though there are multiple Java based platforms.
