    Anyone in the greater Seattle area that is skilled in XSLT and wants to work for 6 months (to start) with the coolest company this side of the Forgotten Realms? Smiley

    I'm hiring.

    Don't forget about this bug in Firefox if you need to translate HTML pieces in XML with XSLT.

    Google has not updated it's Javascript client side XSLT library in 4 years

    With all the security holes, people actually prefer to use sh1tty libraries like PHP/smarty which absolutely leave your server to be rooted if permissions aren't set up perfectly.

    As for Java/Spring/Beans, JSTL is way better because you can define directives and all the default JSTL directives are open.

    If somebody is using XSLT, it's because it's a years old application and supporting those types of apps is no fun at all. It's usually sh1tty work a lead developer assigns people who he or she doesn't like from my exp. As a developer you want to do something new and challenging and that will affect a lot of people.

    @ZippyV: Not a browser-based job.

    @ScottWelker: Not decided on the platform yet. But I'll keep that in mind.

    @Zeus: Heh. You'd be surprised at how much of your, say, medical information, is going thru XSLT processors every day Smiley

    You had me at 'job'.  You lost me at 'XSLT'.

    I've purposefully taken it off my resume Smiley

    Man.  Pretty soon the code to lock threads due to the passage of time can be commented out because they'll all be locked for naughtiness before they take their final breath.  Smiley

    Regardless, thank you blowdart, charles, and others for being a monitor.

    When it gets to personal attacks my patience vanishes. Especially with those who have been banned before for them.

    I haven't worked on XSLT for a while. Has anyone developed something like LinqPad for XSLT? Anyways, if it were browser based, which it isn't, I would using the knockout.js templating. It's kind of difficult to figure out the libraries to master, and master them, before something much better appears.

    I guess you could host a knockout jobs engine in node.js

    To be clear, this is a data transformation/processing job. No web, no JS, nothing of that ilk Smiley

    To be clear, we don't know what you are doing. We don't know what technology, methodology, or architecture you are using. What we do know is that you are doing it wrong. Tongue Out

    Sounds like... if you know XSLT AND you REALLY, REALLY, REALLY need a job, then you should apply Big Smile

    I haven't used XSLT for a while and never did a lot with it, but when I did, I found it kind of useful. What are the apparently better alternatives nowadays then?

    Xslt can be handy taking one source and transforming it to another. I myself haven't used it in 7 years or so I think...back when XmlSpy was free.

    But yeah, I do remember the nasty .NET memory leaks with Xsl stuff...especially with JavaScript in the Xsl. But I think those leaks were all repaired.
