collision between xalan and xerces

Posts: n/a

i've been trying to use xalan for transformations and and xercest for
parsing xml.

i got my transformation to work.

when i first tried xerces 2.5.0 i got
javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory.getSchema ()Ljavax/xml/validation/Schema;

i've read that it uses jaxp-api and not java's own xml interface, and i
saw that you needed to set -Djava.endorsed.dirs to a lib that had
jaxp-api in it, so i did that, and added dom, and xalan jars
(otherwise i would get problems with xpath, and dom).

but now my transformations fell apart with an error of:
ERROR: 'An attribute whose value must be a QName had the value '''

(but it worked before!!!!)

(so that's going on?)

i think i got it now..

to all you gurus who are smiling to one another, go away

it would appear that in code the default xslt processor is changed to
xsltc, which is rather unreliable. in order to go back to using the
default xalan implentation

do this:
javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory= formerFactoryImpl

if you ever consdider using xsltc, be warn, it's crap!!, no matter
faster you get, it's unstable, i'm writing this with the blood of the
dead in 1:30 am, weekend, you have been told, stay away from xsltc!!!!
