Course Description

This hands-on course will introduce students to the fundamentals of the XSL Transformation language (XSLT) for manipulating and transforming XML documents and data. At its core, a transformation expressed in XSLT describes rules for transforming input data into output data.

Some of the rules and topics we’ll cover will include:

  • XPath 2.0 and 3.0 basics and functions
  • XSLT templates, template rules, and template processing
  • XSLT variables
  • A host of XSLT functions
  • Repetitive and Conditional processing
  • Using XSLT to work with and output JSON

We’ll focus primarily on XSLT v.2.0 and the latest XSLT version, v.3.0.

As we learn how to build XSL stylesheets, we’ll also focus on some best practices around XSLT structure, syntax, and approaches to transforming data.

Students should have a basic knowledge of XML and XPath before starting the course, but no knowledge of XSLT is necessary. The natural way to prepare would be to take Transforming and Querying XML with XSLT and XQuery first.
