[xml-dev] Java, DTD locally

We are using Java and SAX.  Our system is distributed and sends text messages between nodes.

We would like to avoid having to have a web server as part of the system, so each node will have the DTD's stored locally.

How can we validate the received XML text against a DTD which resides on the local file system.

In other words, we want to avoid having to include the DOCTYPE tag that points at a URL, but rather choose the DTD just prior to parsing, let the parser know which DTD we are using, and have the parser then validate using this "last minute" DTD.

So the DOCTYPE line below would be omitted.

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<!DOCTYPE our-message PUBLIC "-//OurMessage//EN" "http://somehost/URI/some.dtd">

 Rest of XML
