    Different report results saxon7 vs saxon8

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 19.01

    Problem Description: Reports created in version 18 produce incorrect results in version 19 using SaxonVersion=Saxon8.jar but produce correct results in version 19 using SaxonVersion=Saxon7.jar in \Alephcom\tab\Alephcom.ini

    Actual Results: The site has multiple examples of the problem; the one below demonstrates a total is not calculating correctly.

    Expected Results: The total would calculate correctly regardless of whether Saxon7.jar or Saxon8.jar was specified in Alephcom.ini

    We have analyzed the problem reported. We understand that the local customization works with Saxon7 and not with Saxon8. Out of the box XSLs work as expected for both Saxons. Exlibris cannot support all local customizations done by customers. This is a problem in Saxon8 not in Aleph but still we cannot support it currently. Please instruct use Saxon7 in this case or use the out of the box XSLs. Note that the function used in this XSL is a function not used by EXL XSLs and thus not supported.
