[jdom-interest] Re: Finding the DTD

I have a slightly more complex version of this problem.
Typically I recieve XML files with the following DOCTYPE
<!DOCTYPE FpML PUBLIC "-//FpML//DTD Financial product Markup Language
A System Identifier string ("FpML-1.0.dtd") may follow the public
identifier. This is quite a common situation in the SGML world that is
addressed by the Oasis Open Catalog standard.
When using Xerces I use the EntityResolver interface:
public class Catalog implements EntityResolver
public InputSource resolveEntity (String publicId, String systemId)
return new InputSource(new FileReader(DTDpath));
I do not believe the build(InputStream, String) method solves
this problem. (B.T.W. I only know how to implement this in Xerces and
XML4J 1.x; I am not sure if other parsers even support entity mapping).
Great work; I really like JDOM.
