XML-Binding: Problem creating a new element

                 Key: COCOON-1893
             Project: Cocoon
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Blocks: Forms
    Affects Versions: 2.1.9
            Reporter: Fabian Linz
         Attachments: diff.txt,

Creating a new element with a namespace fails, if no parent element of the new element already
defines the namespace. In this case the operation org.apache.cocoon.util.jxpath.DOMFactory#getNamespaceURI(Element
element, String prefix) returns null which result in the following exception:
org.w3c.dom.DOMException: NAMESPACE_ERR: An attempt is made to create or change an object
in a way which is incorrect with regard to namespaces.

Instead of just relying on the parents to define the namespace the element should define the
namespace itself if no parent provides the definition. To do so we need to map the prefix
of the element to the namespace the prefix refers to. This can be done using the namespaces
the JXPathContext knows. To use the JXPathContext we need to pass the context to the operation
that does the mapping. 

This is done by the attached DOMFactory.
