Subject [jira] Created: (WODEN-165) SAX attribution in NOTICE file is not required
Date Mon, 25 Jun 2007 14:31:25 GMT
SAX attribution in NOTICE file is not required

                 Key: WODEN-165
             Project: Woden
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: John Kaputin
            Assignee: John Kaputin
             Fix For: M8

The NOTICE file includes the attribution:

   This product includes also software developed by :
     - the SAX project (

This attribution should be removed as the Woden source does not include any SAX code. The
Woden binary distribution does include the Apache Xerces binary jar files which do contain
SAX binary code, but the LICENSE.sax file distributed with Woden is sufficient to cover the
use of this binary code.  

This attribution was probably added originally because the org.apache.woden.ErrorLocator interface
javadoc says "Based on org.xml.sax.Locator". This not strictly correct and should be removed.
The Woden ErrorLocator does have methods to get the line and column number of the error within
a file, but this is the only similarity with the SAX Locator interface and is also similar
to many other parser, interpreter and compiler technologies.
