Can you be more specific about what the problem is?

Also, the next release of Apache XML Security (1.4) will include JSR 105 
(Java XML DSig API). The JSR 105 API allows you to implement your own 
Canonicalization (or Transform) algorithms (with support for input 
parameters) by subclassing the javax.xml.crypto.dsig.TransformService 
class. An initial beta of XMLSec 1.4 is now available for testing:
