108 A note on JAXP
109 -----------------------
110
111 Since Java 1.4, JAXP (Java API for XML Processing) is part of the
112 JRE/JDK. Every JVM includes the APIs and an implementation. However,
113 older JREs often contain implementations with bugs that are triggered
114 by code in Apache FOP and therefore need to be overridden. Now, since
115 JAXP is part of the class library, special precautions are necessary
116 to replace the original implementations. This is not done by simply
117 adding new JARs to the classpath as these classes would never be
118 loaded (due to Java's class loader hierarchy).
119
120 Replacing the default implementations involves understanding the
121 "Endorsed Standards Override Mechanism".
122 More information can be found here:
123 http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/standards/index.html
124
125 See also:
126 http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j/faq.html#faq-N100EF
127
128 Essentially, you have two different possibilities:
129 - add the replacement JARs in the jre/lib/endorsed directory of your JRE.
130 - Use the -Xbootclasspath/p: option when starting the JVM (may not be
131 available for every JVM).
