Sarvega Releases Second Edition of XSLT Performance Benchmark

Sarvega Releases Second Edition of XSLT Performance Benchmark

(October 30, 2003) - Sarvega, Inc. is making the second edition of its popular XSLT Benchmark Study publicly available. The study offers detailed results from the benchmark, and can be obtained from the Sarvega Web site.

Sarvega’s updated benchmark captures the latest state of XSLT processors. Although the number of XSLT processors has remained largely unchanged over the past year, the performance of some processors has increased significantly and others have changed minimally.

"The results of our second edition XSLT benchmark provide valuable data – with some significant changes from our first edition," said Sunil Gaitonde, co-founder and CTO of Sarvega. He added that in the past year, deployment of XML-based applications such as Web services has grown significantly and that the first edition of Sarvega’s XSLT benchmark, released last year, is being used by hundreds of organizations as the de facto standard for measuring XSLT performance.

XSLT is a flexible method that is used to transform XML documents into XML, HTML or text documents. The transformation that is performed on a particular input document is specified using a stylesheet, which is the XML document that contains the instructions for the transformation.

As with the first edition, Sarvega provides recommendations for how to benchmark XSLT processors as well as the results from its own benchmark following these recommendations. The results provided are from nine popular XSLT engines including Microsoft MSXML4 engine. For the complete study results, see Sarvega's Web site.

What's the point of this? XSLTMark benchmark has been around since 2000, and seems to work. The only possible motivation is that this company's software does not score well on XSLTMark, so they started their own benchmark as a competing "industry standard" to make their own products look good.
