Description

When running xslt from the command line I have to set more than one catalog file using the catalog option. The documentation tells that this is either a file name or a list of file names separated by semicolons. The last solution does not seem to work. (I'm using EE 9.8.0.12 on MacOS)

Yes, you're right. In general, a list of filenames isn't going to work, because before putting the supplied value in the xml.catalog.files system property, we try to resolve/expand the file name, and this code treats it as a single name.

I will review whether we should change the code to match the documentation or vice versa.

I have patched 9.8 and 9.9 (CommandLineOptions.java) so that it does what the documentation says. The supplied value of the -catalog option is now split on semicolon boundaries and each filename is processed independently; the expanded names are concatenated into a single string which is placed in the xml.catalog.files.

Note that semicolon is used as the separator regardless of operating system.
