The Process of a TrAX Transformation

  1. Load the TransformerFactory with the static TransformerFactory.newInstance() factory method.

  2. Form a Source object from the XSLT stylesheet.

  3. Pass this Source object to the factory’s newTransformer() factory method to build a Transformer object.

  4. Build a Source object from the input XML document you wish to transform.

  5. Build a Result object for the target of the transformation.

  6. Pass both the source and the result to the Transformer object’s transform() method.

Steps four through six can be repeated for as many different input documents as you want. You can reuse the same Transformer object repeatedly in series, though you can’t use it in multiple threads in parallel.
