      Description

      Hi,

      I am having difficulties to use XPath query on a XML dataset having its root element with an xmlns attribute with no prefix.

      In that specific case, the XPath query does not return the value. Since I have no prefix for the namespace I simply can get the value.
      It this a known issue or am I simply doing something wrong ?

      Here is my XML :

      default-ns.xml
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      
      <report xmlns="http://www.mydomain.com/report">
          <account_number>123</account_number>
      </report>
      
          @Test
          public void xPathDefaultNS() throws XPathExpressionException {
              javax.xml.xpath.XPathFactory factory = javax.xml.xpath.XPathFactory.newInstance();
              javax.xml.xpath.XPath xpath = factory.newXPath();
              javax.xml.xpath.XPathExpression expression = xpath.compile("/report/account_number");
              String result = expression.evaluate(new org.xml.sax.InputSource(this.getClass().getResourceAsStream("default-ns.xml")));
              Assert.assertTrue("123".equals(result));
          }
