Date Fri, 20 Nov 2009 08:22:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/XALANJ-2409?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12780478#action_12780478

Eric Wout van der Steen commented on XALANJ-2409:

We've just switched to Xalan 2.7.1 (from Xalan 2.7.0 with Xerces 2.7.1) and see the same effect.

> We switched over when the xerces serializers were deprecated but found tha the xalan
serializer insists on adding bindings for the xml namespace.  I (and the xerces serializer)
believe that this is not necessary - the xml namespace is built-in.
> This resulted in our XML being littered with thousands of needless xmlns:xml=... attributes.
 We've worked around this by making sure we put one on the document root.  I'd like to see
these attributes not serialized.
> I'll attach a test showing this behviour shortly.  It shows that xerces didn't add them
but xalan does.
