XSLT 2.0 via RenderX (or Saxon) for Creating XSL-FOMarch 4, 2015 at 2:33 pmParticipants 2Replies 3Last Activity 7 years, 7 months ago
Does either XMetaL 9 or XMetaL 10 come with a version of RenderX (or Saxon) that supports XSLT 2.0 for creating XSL-FO files?Derek Read March 4, 2015 at 10:38 pm

XMetaL Author Enterprise installs and configures a copy of the DITA Open Toolkit and a licensed copy of RenderX XEP. It is capable of generating all the various outputs the DITA Open Toolkit supports (including PDF using RenderX XEP) plus a number of plug-ins. These all require DITA files as input.
The DITA Open Toolkit itself includes Saxon, so it is available. JustSystems doesn't provide any documentation or support for working directly with Saxon however.
XMetaL Author Enterprise 9 installs DITA OT version 1.8, which includes Saxon 9, which in turn supports XSLT 2.
XMetaL Author Enterprise 10 installs DITA OT versions 1.8 and 2.0 (which both include Saxon).
Note that RenderX XEP is an XSL-FO processor and is not able to generate XSL-FO using XSLT.JamesKayCTR March 5, 2015 at 6:13 pm

Thank you for your reply Derek.
Do you know if the version of Saxon 9 being distributed with XMetaL 9 (or XMetaL 10) also supports XSL extensions (like the exslt.org extensions)?
While we're on the topic of RenderX, does either XMetaL 9 or XMetaL 10 still have the “XEP Assistant” from RenderX? It's in XMetaL 6 – burried in the AppData folder. I can start it up using “x4u.bat” in the renderx folder.Derek Read March 5, 2015 at 7:36 pm

I do not know the answer to your first question. This might be best to ask directly of the DITA Open Toolkit project or here: https://groups.yahoo.com/group/dita-users
RenderX XEP is installed here with versions 9 and 10: C:ProgramDataSoftQuadXMetaLSharedrenderx
We include a full XEP installation, so it includes x4u.bat
