Consider the following XSLT stylesheet style.xsl

<?xml version = "1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl = "http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" 
   version = "1.0">

<xsl:output method = "html" indent = "yes"/>
   <xsl:template match = "/">
      <html>
         <body>
            <xsl:apply-templates/>
         </body>
      </html>
   </xsl:template>

   <xsl:template match = "books">
      <table border = "1" width = "100%">
         <xsl:for-each select = "book">
            <tr>
               <td>
                  <i><xsl:value-of select = "name"/></i>
               </td>
               
               <td>
                  <xsl:value-of select = "author"/>
               </td>
               
               <td>
                  <xsl:value-of select = "price"/>
               </td>
            </tr>
         </xsl:for-each>
      </table>
   </xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>

Now consider the following JSP file −

<%@ taglib prefix = "c" uri = "http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" %>
<%@ taglib prefix = "x" uri = "http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/xml" %>

<html>
   <head>
      <title>JSTL x:transform Tags</title>
   </head>

   <body>
      <h3>Books Info:</h3>
      <c:set var = "xmltext">
         <books>
            <book>
               <name>Padam History</name>
               <author>ZARA</author>
               <price>100</price>
            </book>
          
            <book>
               <name>Great Mistry</name>
               <author>NUHA</author>
               <price>2000</price>
            </book>
         </books>
      </c:set>

      <c:import url = "http://localhost:8080/style.xsl" var = "xslt"/>
      <x:transform xml = "${xmltext}" xslt = "${xslt}"/>

   </body>
</html>

You will receive the following result −
