Project ID: 98590


Provides the Saxon XSLT 3.0 and XQuery 3.0 processor, made by Saxonica.

The goal is to:

  • Build and package the Java version so that it can easily be used from the command line or referenced by another program.
  • Build and package the PHP extension provided by Saxonica so it can be easily installed to use Saxon from PHP code.
  • Build and package the Saxon processor on which the PHP extension depends.

The Saxon products made available are SaxonJ-HE and SaxonC-HE, which are distributed under the terms of the MPL 2.0 licence.
