Subject [jira] Created: (JXPATH-75) The dependency for xerces in commons-jxpath-1.2.pom is too old
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2007 10:05:27 GMT
The dependency for xerces in commons-jxpath-1.2.pom is too old

                 Key: JXPATH-75
             Project: Commons JXPath
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.2 Final
         Environment: java version "1.5.0_04"
            Reporter: Dmitry Katsubo
            Priority: Minor

The following dependency in commons-jxpath-1.2.pom (see
is out-of-date:


The side effect from this dependency is, that some component, that implicitly uses xerces,
may fail with this old xerces version. For example, I am using commons-configuration with
spring framework which assumes, that XML parser is able to make XSD verification of configuration
files, but xerces-1.2.3 is not able to do this.

Solutions are:
a) remove all dependencies from commons-jxpath.pom, related with xerces (I hope, most of the
community uses at least java1.5, or one may include dependency on xerces in his .pom, as in
(c) )
b) update version of xerces in commons-jxpath.pom up to 2.4.0
c) include dependency in your .pom, that overrides version of xerces
