How to use XSL-Transformation with Arbortext Editor 6.1 (ACL/Javascript)?

Dear community,

we would like to use an xsl-transformation script over the opened document in Arbortext Editor 6.1. For this we tried to define a shortcut in acl which calls the xsl-transformation.

Unfortunately we cannot find any command or an useful article in the helpcenter for this. We think this is maybe possible with the use of acl with javascript. Does anybody from you have experience about xslt in arbortext editor 6.1 with acl/javascript?

Thank you a lot in advance.

Hi Gareth,

thank you for your answer. Meanwhile i solved this issue. To start a xsl-script from the AE we use a content pipeline.

In helpcenter we found the helpful chapter 'Using ACL with Pipelines and Filters'. The functions 'get_composer()' and 'run_composer()' did help to start a transformation from with acl.

The standard way of transforming in Arbortext is via PE (Publishing Engine), as a web-service. If you want to do this client-side, I suspect the easiest method will be to call into Java from ACL (or Javascript).
