I have (finally) put together a SAX2 bugfix prerelease, which is
available at


Please take a couple of weeks to test this for bugs.  I plan to put
out the release proper some time in January, then to hand off SAX2.
Please note that this is *not* the time for new-feature requests,
interface changes, etc.

Here is a summary of major fixes:

- Added simple test program src/SAXTest.java

- Synchronized static methods in XMLReaderFactory for thread safety.

- Fixed bug in ParserAdapter that reported an incorrect error when an
attribute using a Namespace prefix appeared before the Namespace

- Fixed bugs in AttributesImpl that caused infinite loops or prevented
removing attributes.

- Specified that InputSource.getSystemId should return null when no
system ID is available.

- Modified DefaultHandler.resolveEntity to throw IOException, as in
the interface specification.

- Added default constructors to SAXException,
SAXNotRecognizedException, and SAXNotSupportedException.

There is a complete ChangeLog in the distribution, for anyone
interested in the agonizing details.

All the best, and Happy New Year,


David Megginson                 david@megginson.com
