The Calabash xproc processor is now supported as an extension module to 
This allows you to run calabash as a command within the same JVM as 
xmlsh runs, as well as using xmlsh native syntax for interfacing to xproc.
For example, to run the pipeline  "test.xpl" with source port from 
"input.xml" and alternate port from "alternate.xml"
     xproc test.xpl <input.xml  (alternate)<alternate.xml

As a side effect of running within xmlsh, all input and output, 
including the pipeline itself can be to or from variables or literal xml 

Note: parameter ports are not yet supported, but will be shortly.  
Support for sequences of documents in input or output is supported by 
'wrapping" the documents.

Enjoy !

Feedback greatly welcome. 

Calabash extension can be downloaded from sourceforge


Requires version of xmlsh
