Subject Re: Relative paths in xsd:import - Partial solution
Date Tue, 30 Mar 2010 09:49:59 GMT

Fetched a tree. 2.2.5 tag, actually.
Weird, I added a test case that reads a document with a doctype declaration,
and the parser just ignores it. So the writeDocument never sees it, so it
doesn't choke.
Somewhere else the document is being read, the doctype declaration is not
dropped, and when StaxUtils tries to spit the xsd out it chokes on the
unexpected doctype declaration.
I'll have to look further into this.
