Xerces Version

Post by twcook » Fri Nov 14, 2014 7:58 pm

I have a need to know the version of Xerces that is shipped with oXygen 16.1; frankly because it works well for me. But there seems to be some confusion in the Xerces user community between 2.11.0 and a 2.11.0 beta dist that supposedly has the support for XML Schema 1.1

The version in 16.1 does what I need so I am wondering if you used the actual shipped version of 2.11.0 or the version labeled xerces-2_11_0-xml-schema-1.1-beta and created a build specifically for oXygen.

Thanks for the insight on this. I hope it will clear the fog. :-)

BTW: Thanks for an awesome toolset.

There's another discussion thread regarding this: Re: Version of xercesImpl in Oxygen In short:

You are welcome to use the xercesImpl.jar from Oxygen. Or you can check out the source code from the Apache SVN repository and re-build the jar yourself.

Note that in addition to this, Oxygen also patches a few known issues in its internal code, so there may still be some differences in behavior in some limited scenarios.
The same is true for v16.1, which has a xercesImpl built from revision 1587245 of the "xml-schema-1.1-dev" branch.
The xercesImpl from our current development stream has already moved further on to revision 1631025 of the "xml-schema-1.1-dev" branch.
