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

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).
