XSLT Search and Refactoring
XSLT Refactoring Actions
oXygen helps you improve code readability of an XSLT
stylesheet and reduce its complexity using refactoring actions. For example, you can
use the Extract template action to break a long template into
smaller templates. Similarly, you can refactor long XPath expressions by extracting
small sub-expressions as local or global variables or parameters. Also, if you want
to move one or more XSLT components (templates or functions) to another stylesheet,
oXygen helps you to refactor your stylesheet.
Working with large stylesheets becomes more and more difficult as their
complexity increases. oXygen helps you reorganize them by allowing you to easily
extract sections from templates, move some XSLT components to other stylesheets,
rename templates and variables, and search references and occurrences in the project
files. Some operations that imply modifications to multiple files display a preview
window that shows the exact changes that will be performed in each file.
Rename XSLT Occurrences
You can rename XSLT components (variables, templates,
functions, etc.) and you have full control over all changes using a Diff view,
which allows you to inspect and review the document edits before accepting them.
The scope of the edits can be the current file, the Project, the Master Files, or another scope that you
Search XSLT References/Declarations
This search is performed for any XSLT component that has
references or declarations (variables, functions, named templates, attribute sets,
etc.) The search scope can be the current file, the Project, the Master Files, or a custom scope that you
Also, all the occurrences of an XSL component are
highlighted in the text when you place the cursor near the component name.
The Component Dependencies view displays a tree of component dependencies,
starting with a specified component. For example, you can quickly see where an
XSLT template is called from, and if called from other named templates, you can
expand it further to see its dependencies.
