Subject [jira] [Commented] (XALANC-745) XalanExe unable to do transform on W3C doc types without workaround
Date Wed, 25 Sep 2013 06:39:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/XALANC-745?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13777200#comment-13777200

Bill Blough commented on XALANC-745:

I agree, writing a custom entity resolver would be the way to go if one was writing code using
Xalan as a library.  But in this case, it's end users that are using XalanExe (or possibly
TestXSLT) as generic utilities to do transformations without writing their own programs. 

Normally the behavior for the default entity resolver should be fine, but now that W3C has
started blocking requests, transformations fail that otherwise wouldn't (due to the remote
resources being unavailable).

One possible solution might be to add an optional command line argument that would specify
a local catalog or cache location that could be checked for remote resources prior to the
normal DNS lookup and subsequent fetch.

> Since W3C has started blocking some fetches of their documents due to overuse, it is
no longer possible to transform xhtml (or presumably other W3C doc types) using XalanExe as
> If the source document is edited and the DOCTYPE URL is adjusted to reflect an existing
local or non-W3C-hosted copy of the DTD, then the transform completes as expected.
> I suggest adding functionality to XalanExe that will allow it to make use of locally
installed DTD/XSD catalogs instead of fetching docs from the W3C website.
