My problem is simple: in my XML data, a timestamp is provided as a long integer (number of milliseconds since the "the epoch"). When I do XSLT, I want to display it as a readable string, such as "Mon Nov 01 18:08:48 CDT 2010". After hours of struggle, I found: It's not so easy to get the job done with JDK 1.6 There are tons of garbage on the web in this space (suggestions, code snippets that simply don't work) Simple Xalan extension functions was the only resource that's somewhat informative. Even there some of the examples don't work. Below is a list of what worked and what didn't. This works: <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="h... This does not (providing long value to Date constructor): <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="h......

The Android unit test framework is based on JUnit 3 , not JUnit 4. Test cases have to extend junit.framework.TestCase or a subclass (such as android.test.InstrumentationTestCase ). Tests are identified by public methods whose name starts with test , not methods annotated with @Test (as in JUnit 4). An Android test suite is packaged as an APK, just like the application being tested. To create a test package, first you need to identify the application package it is testing. Google suggests to put the test package source in a directory named tests/ alongside the src/ directory of the main application. At runtime, Android instrumentation loads both the test package and the application under test into the same process. Therefore, the tests can invoke methods on...

Following are some bugs in the Xalan jar shipped with JBoss 5.1.0 GA and JBoss 6.0. The Xalan jar file is located in jboss-5.1.0.GA/lib/endorsed ( %JBOSS_HOME%/common/lib for JBoss 6.0). Test xml: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> ... Test xsl: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <xs... XSLT Java code: import org.w3c.dom.*; import javax.xml.parsers.... import java.util.Date; public class DateUti... XSLT output: Transformer Factory class: class org.apache.xalan.... Apparently, the output is wrong. The string "A test event" should not have been displayed.
