63 A note on JAXP
64 -----------------------
65
66 Since Java 1.4, JAXP (Java API for XML Processing) is part of the
67 JRE/JDK. Every JVM includes the APIs and an implementation. However,
68 older JREs often contain implementations with bugs that are triggered
69 by code in Apache FOP and therefore need to be overridden. Now, since
70 JAXP is part of the class library, special precautions are necessary
71 to replace the original implementations. This is not done by simply
72 adding new JARs to the classpath as these classes would never be
73 loaded (due to Java's class loader hierarchy).
74
75 Replacing the default implementations involves understanding the
76 "Endorsed Standards Override Mechanism".
77 More information can be found here:
78 http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/standards/index.html
79
80 See also:
81 http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j/faq.html#faq-N100EF
82
83 Essentially, you have two different possibilities:
84 - add the replacement JARs in the jre/lib/endorsed directory of your JRE.
85 - Use the -Xbootclasspath/p: option when starting the JVM (may not be
86 available for every JVM).
