In Xerces2 we've decided to use null instead of empty string for URI.
As a temporary solution, I can fix the problem in AbstractSAXParser
(getURI() - to return "" instead of null). 
However, I am not sure that this is right - I believe that the problem
is in SAX definition. 
Why is it required that URI would be an empty string, which btw is not a
legal URI?
