What would you like to do?
Apex MD API and XSLT

Requirement

Perform XSLT transform on XML returned from the Salesforce Metadata API retrieve operation (also requires unzip). Based on the code in https://github.com/financialforcedev/apex-mdapi

Solution

Adapting the metadataretrieve.page in the above repository. The original page passed the client side unzipped files from the MD retrieve zip file back to the server to add to the view state for display. As the XSLT is done client side, the above page is much simpler, the unzipped files are just handled client side and added dynamically to the page DOM.
