Subject [jira] [Commented] (FELIX-2962) SCR doesn't detect invalid XML
Date Mon, 23 May 2011 10:18:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2962?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13037870#comment-13037870

Felix Meschberger commented on FELIX-2962:

Thanks for reporting.

We use a "real" parser since KXml is a fast, light-weight, real parser. Hence I do not consider
replacing the parser at this point in time.

But, I admit, that error reporting my be improved and you could help us do that !

If you could provide invalid XML and state the expected behaviour (in terms of logging, I
would assume), this would help use improving error reporting. Thanks alot !

> The XML parser (kxml2) used by SCR doesn't detect many forms of incorrect XML, even basic
errors like mismatched start and end tags.  This makes diagnosing component load errors very
frustrating.  Please use a real XML parser.  It will save developers a lot of pain.
