MSV uses Xerces as a JAXP compliant parser to parse schemas. So
virtually any XML parser will work.
MSV also uses the regular expression library developed by Apache
Software Foundation. This library is also included in xerces.jar.
Therefore Xerces is currently bundled in MSV.
The command line tool supports "-crimson" switch and "-oracleV2" switch.
You can use these options if you want to test MSV with them.
Or you can place any JAXP compliant parser in the classpath, so that
SAXParserFactory.newInstance() method can find it.
