Subject [jira] Updated: (JCR-217) class org.apache.jackrabbit.name.QName has a hardcoded dependency on Xerces
Date Fri, 16 Sep 2005 09:12:57 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-217?page=all ]

Stefan Guggisberg updated JCR-217:

        type: Improvement  (was: Bug)
    Priority: Minor  (was: Critical)

Changing issue type/priority to "Improvement/Minor" since this is clearly not a bug.

frankly i don't see a problem with the current implementation but if the majority 
considers the xerces dependency a problem i wouldn't be against removing it. however, 
adding a dependency to jaxp 1.3 could imo be a problem because of licensing issues 
(correct me if i am wrong).

> The class org.apache.jackrabbit.name.QName, has an unneeded dependency on Xerces which
make it difficult to work with the XML parser or ones choice.
> The dependency (on line 246) is on the method "XMLChar.isValidNCName" only. I suggest
one of the following solutions
> - Copy the implementation of this method to the QName class, it is a very simple implementation.
> - Use the mehtod provided in JAXP 1.3 javax.xml.XMLUtils.isValidNCName, which will create
dependency on JAXP 1.3 though. JDK 1.5 ships with JAXP 1.3
> This dependency is causing us alot of trouble since we need to use another parser that
is optimized for large XML data.
