How to make xslt handle custom tag (w/ namespace?)

How to make xslt handle custom tag (w/ namespace?)

How to make xslt handle custom tag (w/ namespace?)

(OP)
I have an xslt that correctly processing :
  <?xml version="1.0"?>
  <aaamylist>
     <aaasomenode>x</aaasomenode>
     <aaasomenode>y</aaasomenode>
     <aaasomenode>z</aaasomenode>
  </aaamylist>

BUT, the "real" file of data has colons in the tags, like this:
  <?xml version="1.0"?>
  <aaa:mylist>
     <aaa:somenode>x</aaa:somenode>
     <aaa:someother>y</aaa:someother>
     <aaa:another>z</aaa:another>
  </aaa:mylist>

I then want an XSLT like this:
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
    version="1.0"    
    ><xsl:output method="text" /><xsl:template match="//aaa:mylist"><xsl:value-of
    select="@aaa:someother" /></xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

How could I get my xslt to properly recognize //aaa:mylist and process N number of records in the xml file? If you can, please include sample code.

Thank you in advance!


 

RE: How to make xslt handle custom tag (w/ namespace?)

If your XML document really looks like that, it is not well formed.

In particular, you are probably omitting that it has a namespace declaration.  It would look like xmlns:aaa="some string"
