In the original 4.0 version from aD there was a java function that could apply a stylesheet to an XML clob field. I dug thru my old code and CVS and I can find the docs but not the code.

If you hava a copy can you either post it or send it to me.

You can use ns_xml or tDOM (whichever you are using) to apply XSL stylesheets. Maybe we can add that to the XML abstraction procedures.

I'm trying to build a pdf from xml in the database and put it back into the database. It seems a bit silly to pull it out and then put it back in because I need to batch about 20,000 of them every night.

if you find yourself taking the tDOM road, you can find an example of using tDOM for XSL conversion in http://cvs.openacs.org/cvs/openacs-4/contrib/packages/irc-logger/tcl/irc-logger-procs.tcl?view=auto&rev=1.6.

Including a custom Tcl function used in the transformation.

As long as XML that is being pulled out is a valid one, yes...  Otherwise it might be advisable to pipe it through something like Tidy to at least close out tags and replace &'s <'s, >'s, etc. with named entities.  If that "XML" is user-drivven, there might be a problem.
