I'm looking into trying to use resin to handle saxon in a web application project. Right now, our application does alot of xsl transforms using Saxon, and everytime we do a transform, we have to start up the JVM, which seems to take a while each time. Our idea was to let Saxon run in resin, and then hopefully, the JVM wouldn't have to start each time and result in better performance.

Ok, so we'd like to change as little as possible, and right now we're calling saxon from a shell script. Does anyone know how we could make a call to Saxon sitting on Resin from a unix shell script (probably bash.)

Just a heads up- I'm a co-op student so I'm pretty ignorant in alot of areas, but thanks for any help.
