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

Travis Schneeberger commented on XMLBEANS-539:


Thanks so much for the quick reply.  I had no idea that xmlbeans supported other xpath implementations.  This is very helpful and will improve some greenfield development we are doing that relies on xmlbeans. Might I suggest that you document this capability here: [https://xmlbeans.apache.org/docs/3.0.0/guide/conSelectingXMLwithXQueryPathXPath.html] and/or here: [https://xmlbeans.apache.org/documentation/conInstallGuide.html].  After reading the current documentation around xpath, I was under the impression that I had to use saxon.


[Side note: in case you're curious, we selected xmlbeans because of it's very capable SchemaTypeSystem.  As far as I can tell it is the best library in the java space for discovering schema information]

> 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)).
