I am working on setting up my companies documentation repository to use catalog files for all of our docbook source since the writers can checkout anywhere in the file hierarchy. We use xerces for our xml validation so it needs to be able to resolve urls using a catalog file. Before the transition to catalog files we used the following command to verify the xml files.


java -Xms200000000 -Xmx1400000000 -classpath "D:\sandbox\docbook\resources\xerces.jar;D:\sandbox\docbook\resources\xercesSamples.jar " sax.SAXCount -v D:\sandbox\docbook\src\releasenotes.xml


Now we have the following catalog file and I need to know how to tell xerces to use it since it says that “The XML Commons Resolver 1.2 is included with the binary distribution of Xerces.” However it shows how to use the resolver programming wise but not command line wise.


<?xml version="1.0"?>

<!DOCTYPE catalog

   PUBLIC "-//OASIS/DTD Entity Resolution XML Catalog V1.0//EN"



<catalog xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:entity:xmlns:xml:catalog">

  <group prefer="public">



                                rewritePrefix="file:///D:/asdf/" />



                                rewritePrefix="file:///D:/asdf/" />



                                rewritePrefix="file:///D:/asdf/" />



                                rewritePrefix="file:///D:/asdf/" />




Thank you in advance for any information you may be able to give.
