   RE: [xml-dev] JAXP and Entity Resolver

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Are you parsing an InputStream or Reader? If so, try setting the URI in the
InputSource, as well. The parser needs to resolve relative URIs to an
absolute URI before invoking your EntityResolver. It can't do that if it
doesn't know the base URI in effect for the document.
