    A Use-Case Driven Approach to the Development of Reusable Stylesheet

    Developing a library of XSLT stylesheets that can operate on documents
    of different types is a challenging. While XSLT supports modularization,
    it takes some experience to learn how to properly modularize XSLT.

    Collaborative XSLT development poses many challenges: misunderstanding
    of XSLT import precedence rules can lead a team to abandon logical modularization
    approaches; XSLT code requirements are difficult to articulate without writing
    the stylesheets themselves; and XSLT code can be overwhelming to review without good

    This presentation will describe the experiences of a team of experienced and
    junior engineers that created a collection of re-usable stylesheets. The
    presentation will review the Stylesheet Unit Test Driver that the team
    created and the development methodology that the team followed.
