Subject Re: Jaxen dependency
Date Fri, 02 Jan 2009 17:12:12 GMT
There is no issue with the JDOM library though. AFAIK, JDOM has a
pluggable XPath mechanism, but I'm not sure what other implementations
are available for it.
So I guess the options are:
1. Find another XPath handler for JDom
2. Try to find a way to avoid using XPath in Aegis (not sure if this
is possible at all)
3. Rewrite the XPath processing code to use something else, such as
JAXP as Sergey suggests.

Ideas anyone?
