XSLT continues to become a standard technology when creating Transforms. BizTalk Services includes XSLT support, including existing XSLT Transforms.
To add XSLT:
In the BizTalk Services or BizTalk Service Artifacts project in Visual Studio, open a Transform (.trfm) file.
Click the Transform design surface.
In Properties, click XSLT, and click the ellipses (…). A Configure XSLT dialog window is opened.
To import an existing XSLT file, click Import XSLT. Browse to the .xslt or .xsl file and click Open. The imported XSLT populates the Configure XSLT dialog window.
OR, enter the XSLT syntax in the Specify the XSLT below … window.
Optional. To import an existing XML extension file, click Import EXTXML. Browse to the XML file and click Open. The imported XML populates the Specify the extension objects … dialog window.
OR, enter the XML syntax in the Specify the extension objects … window.
Optional. Click Use XslCompiledTransform for better performance to transform XML data by compiling XSLT style sheets and executing XSLT Transforms. When the style sheet is compiled, it can be cached and reused. Otherwise, the XslTransform class is used; which is best when executing a Transform on one occurrence.
When XSLT is used, the Transform design surface is grayed out. XSLT can be specified for every Transform file (.trfm).
