Composing XSL Transformations with XML Publishing Views

Composing XSL Transformations with XML Publishing Views
While the XML Stylesheet Language for Transformations (XSLT) was not designed as a query language, it is well-suited for many query-like operations on XML documents including selecting and restructuring data. Further, it actively fulfills the role of an XML query language in modern applications and is widely supported by application platform software. However, the use of database techniques to optimize and execute XSLT has only recently received attention in the research community. In this paper, we focus on the case where XSL transformations are to be run on XML documents defined as views of relational databases. For a subset of XSLT, we present an algorithm to compose a transformation with an XML view, eliminating the need for the XSLT execution. We then describe how to extend this algorithm to handle several additional features of XSLT, including a proposed approach for handling recursion.
