The Transformation Pipeline

  • AxKit processes material in a pipeline
  • The output of one stage is input of the next (passes DOM tree in memory normally)
  • Processes in the pipeline can be XSLT transformations, Perl programs, or anything we care to define
  • Flexible definition of how to start the pipeline (Providers — ie a file system)
  • Processes map to processors by mime types
