I'm using XML as part of a Java servlet-driven framework.  The servlets
implement the control logic, and interact with EJBs which implement
business logic and DB access.

The servlet collects output data in a hash-table.  Then, I (plan to) run a
template-processor, which splices this data into existing XML templates,
constructing an abstract view of the page. The templating system here is
similar to HTML templating systems like FreeMarker and WebMacro.  Templates
don't contain logic, just layout.

Finally XSLT transformtion into HTML, rather than delivering XML to the

Has anyone done something similar?

We are building something similar to this. However, the XML server checks

sends the XML+XSL or XML+CSS to the client. Otherwise the XML document is
transformed server side. We also use XML themplates that we call XSP
