Background

The XSL Tools project will focus specifically on the Transformation engine of the W3C XSL Specification. XSL stands for Extensible Stylesheet Language and this project is concerned with two of its technologies, XSL Formatting Objects (XSL-FO, as defined in the XSL Recommendation) and the XSL Transformation language (XSLT). From here on out, when XSL is mentioned, it is in reference to the Transformation language.

The XSL Tools project is a WebTools Incubator project. The project's goal and background can be found in the XSL Tools Proposal. Its scope is to provide basic XSL editing and debugging support to compliment and leverage the XML and source editing support within WTP.

Requirements

The XSL Tools Requirements page is another area that the community can use to express what functionality they need or want in the project.

Project Status

Current status and views of the product backlog can be found on the XSLT Development pages. These pages will be used to show and track progress for each milestone release.
