I've used several different SAXParsers to parse the following document:

truncated="false" xmlns="urn:uddi-org:api">
         <businessInfo businessKey="ba744ed0-3aaf-11d5-80dc-002035229c64">

Where I'm having a problem is in my handler's startElement 
implementation.  Seems that attributes(idx).getURI() always returns 
an empty string.  For an attribute like businessKey, I would have 
expected the default URI "urn:uddi-org:api".

Is this a bug in the parser?  Or am I doing something wrong?

The latter. Default namespaces never apply to attributes. The parser 
is correct. An unprefixed attribute is *never* in a namespace, not 
the default namespace, not the namespace of its parent element, no 
namespace ever.
