you would probably want to download the instant-saxon (comes as an exe)
Instant-Saxon
and start using from command line. Could be as
simple as
saxon <xml-file> <xsl-file>
Don't use xml4j for a XML parser. I would probbaly recommend Xerces-J (from Apache)

Hi
What is saxon and xml4j.
I too am starting off studying for XML certification, I am currently looking the following books for Certification.
1. XML By Example
2. XML Bible
will these books contain enough information for the certification, I undersntand that I will have to do lot more research and looking around and reading a lot of other stuff. But are these book good for starting off, I do have knowledge about XML and basic DTD, but I still need to learn a lot about advanced XML ( like using Entities, Notations etc) also have to learn about Namespaces and XSL etc. The current book that I am reading it XML by Example, this book seems to be quite good but I found it a bit complex while reading about DTD and entities, well I had to read certain topics a couple of times to understand.

The books that really cover the exam material are the ones that IBM recommends on their website. However, you are probably better off starting by studying easier books. For more information, see my FAQ on this page or search this forum for books.
