> Hmm, no, but as the new code relies on JAXP, which is part of the J2SE API since 1.4.
I assume, this code is correct in both 1.4 and 1.5 I have to assume, right ? Correct me if
I am wrong.

well, just a example: the public class org.apache.xml.utils.XMLChar is part of the 1.4 jre
but it doesn't exist in jre 1.5.

> ... Is this kind of test a requirement for fixes ? 

it's IMO common sense to thoroughly test changes with significant potential impact on public
api mehtods
and unknown side effects, especially if they replace time-tested code.

:-)

well then consider the XMLChar case above...
