Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] [ANN] XSL Coverage scripts

Hi Richard,

Yes, it means that: when stylesheets are processed on a given test xml file, the tool traces the templates applied, and within the called templates the XSL instructions performed (some instructions can be unreachable because of conditional processing with xsl:if, xsl:choose). In the HTML coverage report, the covered lines (that is, the XSL lines used to transform the XML) have green background, while unused lines have yellow backgrounds. Clicking on the green lines point to the XML line(s) processed. The overall statistics for the stylesheets used are in a coverage index file.

An example of such a report is here:

Hi Ben,

This looks interesting, but I’ve got a basic (dumb:-) question. What do you mean by coverage?

Do you mean test coverage, that is, calculating how much a given test xml file exercises the stylesheets, or do you mean something else?

For your information, I've packaged a few python scripts and a java plugin for Saxon to compute and visualize the coverage of XSL stylesheets when processed on documents with saxon (currently tested with saxon 6.5.5).

It's available here:


You can look at the result with an example at the end of the readme.
