Using Templates for Concurrent XSLT Transformations

Using Templates for Concurrent XSLT Transformations

As you know, you may not use a Transformer object (from the TrAX API) in multiple threads running concurrently. To do this, you need to use Templates. The following three example threads demonstrate:
