[jira] [Commented] (XMLBEANS-539) Support for newer versions of Saxon as an XPath engine

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/XMLBEANS-539?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16904407#comment-16904407 ]

PJ Fanning commented on XMLBEANS-539:
-------------------------------------

We'll hopefully get around to this soon but in the mean time, XMLBeans XPath support includes a mechanism for dropping in your own XPath implementation to replace the built-in one.

[https://github.com/tunguski/xmlbeans-jxpath] is an example

I would suggest building one based on the JAXP XPathFactory might be the tidiest approach.

If you anyone is able to get one of these working, could you submit the code here?

> It is still a limitation of using old version of Saxon to achieve xpath search in XmlBeans. It would be nice to be able to use Saxon HE with XmlBeans. Older versions of saxon (including early versions of HE prior to 9.5) have problems with new versions of java (getting error /lib/saxon9-xpath.jar/META-INF/services/javax.xml.xpath.XPathFactory:2: Illegal configuration-file syntax at java.xml/javax.xml.xpath.XPathFactory.newInstance(XPathFactory.java:119)).
