This package provides the core classes of the SAXON XSLT library.

Some of the more important classes are listed below:

{@link net.sf.saxon.Query}:
This is the command line interface to the XQuery processor, allowing you to run a supplied query against a given source document.

{@link net.sf.saxon.Transform}:
This is the command line interface to the XSLT processor, allowing you to apply a given stylesheet to a given source document.

{@link net.sf.saxon.Configuration}:
This class holds all the Saxon configuration information, and acts as the fundamental factory class holding central resources and creating components such as validators and serializers.

{@link net.sf.saxon.PreparedStylesheet}:
This represents a compiled XSLT stylesheet in memory. It is Saxon's implementation of the javax.xml.transform.Templates interface defined in JAXP 1.1

{@link net.sf.saxon.Controller}:
This class represents the context information for a single execution of an XSLT stylesheet, and allows the application to process the tree navigationally. It is Saxon's implementation of the {@link javax.xml.transform.Transformer} interface defined in JAXP 1.1. It calls user-supplied handlers registered with the RuleManager.
