Default Remove namespace from output file

Hi,

I am getting the namespace uri value in my output file. I am passing the text file as an input and the output is xml. I am new to xslt.
The problem is when i use older version of both xerces and xalan it is working fine. But when i use newer versions of xerces and xalan (includes xercesimpl.jar & serializer.jar), i am getting namespace values.

Please suggest me how to get rid of this? Should i need to change anything in my XSL.

Thanks in advance,
Peter.

It's very difficult to show people what's wrong with their code if they don't show you the code.

If you have an unwanted namespace in your output there are two main reasons. Either it was copied from the stylesheet, in which case you can often get rid of it using exclude-result-prefixes. Or it was copied from the source document using xsl:copy or xsl:copy-of. In 2.0 you can solve that using the copy-namespaces="no" option on those instructions. In 1.0 it's harder: instead of copying the elements, you need to rebuild them one by one using xsl:element.

So what's your output, and what namespace to you want to get rid of?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<n-load dataid ='REALDEEDS' notify ='West.PubRecsProdBuilder@thomson.com'>
<n-document control="ADD" guid=" 04003~10903005G001~2003092220031015000001037367~" m:contextKey="04003" xmlns:m="http://projects.int.westgroup.com/unity/morpheus"></n-document>

You can't get rid of the declaration of namespace m because your output includes an attribute in that namespace (m:contextKey). So before you can get rid of the namespace you need to either get rid of the attribute or put it in a different namespace.

Your code is explicitly creating that attribute:

    <xsl:attribute name="m:contextKey">
        <xsl:value-of select="col.cd.orig"/>
    </xsl:attribute>

so I don't know how you want to change it.

hi michael,

but when i run the same xsl file with older version of xerces and xalan im getting the below output

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<n-load dataid ='REALDEEDS' notify ='West.PubRecsProdBuilder@thomson.com'>
<n-document control="ADD" guid=" 04003~10903005G001~2003092220031015000001037367~"> </n-document>
</n-load>

here the namespace doesnt appears. i want the same output while running using the newer versions of xerces and xalan (and xercesimpl, serializer)

It looks to me as if the earlier Xalan release wasn't outputting the m:contextKey attribute, presumably on the theory that its name is invalid (XSLT 1.0 allows the processor to drop an attribute with an invalid name). But that's wrong, it's name isn't invalid, it just uses a namespace which you've asked to exclude. The correct action is to output the attribute and the namespace, so it looks as if they fixed the bug. If you don't want the attribute to be output then get rid of the xsl:attribute instruction.
