Enum Class XSLTProcess.ParamType

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<XSLTProcess.ParamType>, Constable
Enclosing class:

public static enum XSLTProcess.ParamType extends Enum<XSLTProcess.ParamType>
Enum for types of the parameter expression.

The expression can be:

  • primitive type that will be parsed from the string value e.g. Integer.parseInt(java.lang.String)
  • XPath expression that will be evaluated (outside of the transformed document - on empty one) and casted to given type. Inside XPath expressions the Ant variables (properties) can be used (as XPath variables - e.g. $variable123). n.b. placeholders in form of ${variable123} will be substituted with their values before evaluating the XPath expression (so it can be used for dynamic XPath function names and other hacks).

The parameter will be then passed to the XSLT template.

Default type (if omitted) is primitive String. So if the expression is e.g "true" with no type, in XSLT it will be only a text string, not true boolean.
