investigate using XSLT key() mechanism for improving assertions.sch
Last modified: 2010-12-17 12:38:12 CET
In learning more about Schematron, I discovered that schematron supports the the XSLT key mechanism:
The XSLT key mechanism is essentially a way to generate cached hash tables for enabling very quick lookup (tens of times faster than just using XPath) of keys and values. Unsurpisingly, the most common use case is for ID/IDREF checking.
So, anyway, switching to using the key mechanism in assertions.sch could make its performance much faster. Whether it would ever make it fast enough for consideration in real production use again for validator.nu, I don't know. But seems worth giving it a try.
moving this to resolution=later for now, as it's a very low priority to begin with
Getting rid of LATER.
not fixed… but not worth keeping open
