Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-367) Remove dependency on Xerces
Date Tue, 27 Jun 2006 15:17:30 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-367?page=comments#action_12418041 ] 

Jukka Zitting commented on JCR-367:

> Use JAXP Transformer (yes it is part of the Java Runtime siince 1.4) for export

We should be careful with especially namespaces being correctly transmitted through the Transformer
interface. There are a few bug reports about the same issue earlier on.

> Copy XMLChar to o.a.j.util. Yes, this is not the best of all solutions, but it removes
the dependency and XMLChar is Apache, too.

Agreed. Not nice, but not too bad either.

> Remains the o.a.j.c.nodetype.converter package which contains a XML Schema to node type
> This is probably not a tool, which is run on a casual server implementation. Therefore,
leaving the dependency
> there and documenting is probably ok. Better would probably be to take this out fo the
core repository package,
> not sure, though.

The XML Schema converter was included in core when I merged the CND support from contrib.
It really should be outside the core unless we want to support direct XML Schema imports through

I've also been thinking about replacing the converter with an XSL transformation. Any takers?
