Hello Edwin,

I am afraid I might sound a little bit anxious so please pardon me :-)

Some time ago I created a defect "Setting SAXParser/DOMBuilder features via JAXP" http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1143

Right now there is no way to set certain Parser/DOMBuilder features via JAXP
for example "http://apache.org/xml/features/dom/defer-node-expansion" which causes us a lot of grief

So far I have not got any reply whether this feature is going to be implemented or not.
There is nothing about it in Xerces 1.4 release plan and nobody has touched the defect so far.

There was some talk mailto:nboyd@atg.com on the mailing list that it is delayed because Sun has not clarified proper usage of DocumentBuilderFactory.setAttribute()/getAttribute() is it true?

Can we expect this fix any time soon?

Thank you very much in advance

Alex Roytman
