I did put xml-apis.jar (version 1.4) in my application endorsed directory, to be sure that everyone runs/builds against the right XML-apis.
Unfortunately this introduces a dependency with the codehause / woodstox implementation, in my case com.ctc.wstx.stax.WstxOutputFactory ; see line 30:
In my project this dependency is 'undesired'. The bad thing here is that I cannot override this default implementation. Since the application runs e.g. in tomcat, setting a system property is difficult / impossible.
The second issue is that it is not possible to explicitly reference to the com.sun... implementation from my code, since one can not rely on running in the Sun JVM.
So my question:
- why the woodstox dependency?
- please could you remove this dependency?
It might be a good idea add some notes regarding this on the xml-commons web pages.
Should xml-apis.jar be in the jvm/application endorsed directory?
