Transforming XML with XSL using Sablotron Page 6

Hopefully this all helps somewhat in your quest to implement XML and XSL on
your PHP platform.
Here are some links that should help you on your way:
Here’s some info on obtaining and installing Sablotron and the extension module:
I installed Sablotron and the PHP module on my home brewed Linux box. I know
the Sablotron processor is available for Windows and Solaris platforms to.
I’m not sure about the PHP4 Sablotron extension module on other platforms besides
Linux but I believe it’s possible.
I found it quite difficult to get the Sablotron module loaded by the PHP engine,
but eventually got it right. The trick is to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH equal to the
directory where all your PHP modules/extensions are situated.
e.g. for my installation I did the following: LD_LIBRARY_PATH = /usr/local/lib
When it is installed you should see something like the following screen if
you call phpinfo(); from a script.

Hey look there’s also something about Java in this info script , so stay tuned
because in my next article we’ll look at using Java Beans from PHP. This is
really cool too !
Questions on installation, XML, XSL/XSLT and PHP are all welcome in the posts
