XSLT Unit Testing

I like test driven development and automatic testing, so also for my XSLT code.
I wanted to do this also within Oracle SOA Suite. Unfortunately this comes not out-of-the-box from the SOA Suite, so i searched the Net.
Eventually i came to XMLUnit 1.2, whcih is an extension of JUnit (version 3.8.2).
This framework contains some extension functions especially for XML, like transformations.

First you have to configure XMLUnit to use the Oracle XSLT classes:
System.setProperty("javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory", "oracle.xml.jaxp.JXDocumentBuilderFactory");
System.setProperty("javax.xml.parsers.SAXParserFactory", "oracle.xml.jaxp.JXSAXParserFactory");
System.setProperty("javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory", "oracle.xml.jaxp.JXSAXTransformerFactory");

Implementing a test case
Extend from XMLTestCase:
public class MyTestCase extends XMLTestCase

Configure namespaces (this can be done within the setup() method:
    protected void setUp() {
        HashMap m = new HashMap();
        m.put("msg", "http://www.example.nl/Message/v1.0");
        m.put("org", "http://www.example.nl/Organisation/v1.0");
        ctx = new SimpleNamespaceContext(m);

Do a transformation on test data:
    public static Document transform(String input, String xsl) throws Exception{
        System.out.println("Input: " + input);
        System.out.println("Xsl: " + xsl);
        File inputStream = new File(input);
        File myStyleSheet = new File(xsl);
        Transform myTransformation = new Transform(
            new StreamSource(inputStream), new StreamSource(myStyleSheet));
        String result = myTransformation.getResultString();
        Document doc = myTransformation.getResultDocument();
        return doc;

Test the outcome with asserts:
assertXpathEvaluatesTo("000001","/msg:Message/org:Employment/org:ID", doc);
"/msg:CizMessage/msg:Body/org:Employment/org:StartDate", doc);

Put into JUnit testsuite (Example AllTests class):
    public static TestSuite suite( ) {
        TestSuite suite= new TestSuite("All JUnit Tests");
        return suite;

Be sure to include the jars (JDeveloper):

You can also run the tests within Ant (I used JDeveloper included Ant)
Build.xml file:

Waarbij ${testsuite.class}=AllTests
