Enable XSLT 2.0 Support in the XSLTransform Node

Per PMR 36495,082,000: XSLT 2.0 is supported in IIB version 9. However it is not supported by the XSL transform node. XPATH 2.0 can only be used with the mapping node. Every other node that uses XPATH only supports XPATH 1.0. If the customer wants to use XPATH 2.0 functions they need to use the mapping node.

This request is to enable full XPATH 2.0 in the XSLTransform node.

    For general FYI, as part of our regular practice of reviewing RFEs this enhancement remains on our radar. Status currently kept at Uncommitted Candidate.

    May I ask You, if there is any progress with the support of XSL-T 3.0 and XPath 3.1 in ACE 11?

    TIBCO and WSO2 have a support for XSLT 2.0, Mule has even support of XSLT 3.0 and XPath 3.1...

    Now, when XSL-T 2.0 is almost overcome with XSL-T 3.0 and XPath 3.1, whould not be better to skip support of XSL-T 2.0 and XPath 2.0 and move forward the effort to the support of XSL-T 3.0 and XPath 3.1? What about to allow to use Saxon HE, PE, EE or Exselt engines as the XSL-T engines for XSL-T transformation?

    Support for this is long overdue.

    I think, that request # 47235 is not duplicated to this request # 53855. This one is about XPath 2.0, while that one is about XSL-T 2.0. And also I think, that we would like to have read and write access to the whole Root via XSL-T 2.0, not only current Body (so to add Properties, Environment, LocalEnvironment...). And IBM has its own implementation of XSL-T 2.0 engine (IBM WebSphere Application Server V7.0 Feature Pack for XML) for years, so...

    Thanks; we'll add XPATH 2.0 support in due course.
