Hello Dave and Michael,

Thanks for your reactions. Please note my comments below.

I don't have a problem with creating a custom URI resolver. I already have done this and it works fine in other cases. The thing is that I also want to use the behaviour of the default URI resolver and only want to use my custom methods in case the default URI resolver fails. The example shows a complete custom URI resolver.

I've already tried what the getURIResolver() method in Xalan does when you haven't first set a custom URI resolver. It returns null and therefore I can't use the example of Michael. Of course I could switch to Saxon, but I'm already using Xalan for other actions in the same project and I don't want to use more software than necessary.
However, this raised the idea to check if there already is a URI resolver (default) implementation in the Saxon source and use this to create a custom URI resolver for Xalan. In the Xalan source I can't find anything like this.

Because I don't think that this is the most preferrable solution, better ideas are always welcome!
