I have always had trouble getting Xalan to install correctly for Java
version, and trouble with compiling with the C++ version (partially this
is because of trying to install and set up Xerces, and not directly due
to Xalan), but xsltproc comes on the system, with no setup required.
I am now curious which distribution and version you use to run Xalan on?
FYI, generating code from XML sounds interesting, might be a good topic
for BLUG presentation (XSLT and generating anything from it).
