Some Basics on XSLT Transformation

This post will elucidate some basic concerns for development of XSLT scripts. While I was writing some script for a wso2 ESB XSLT transformation I decided that this process would be a useful one to share.
Firstly I will point out some XSLT Elements
<xsl:template name="get_age"> <xsl:param name="age" select="'%str'" /> <age><xsl:value-of select="$age"/></age> </xsl:template>
you can call this get_age from XSLT
<xsl:call-template name="get_unique_value"> <xsl:with-param name="age" select="//students/james/age/node()" />
Commenting also input after xslt generate it output. In there you like to see some comments
Here I am writing a comment for my out transformation.
If Input XML if we have age for student name (james) write it for output. Only the age file not the parent tags.
<xsl:if test="//students/james/age!='' "> <age><xsl:copy-of select="//students/james/age/node()"/></age> </xsl:if>
for-each Student will have age and we need each age for each student. Element loops through each node in a specified node set.
<xsl:for-each select="//students”> <student> <age><xsl:copy-of select="//students/james/age/node()"/></age> <student> </xsl:for-each>
choose school for student age
<xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="age>'10'"> <school><xsl:text>ordinary</xsl:text><school> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <school><xsl:text>primary</xsl:text><school> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose>Next post I will write some XSLT Functions
