Does JDom have an api for validating pattern matching
in schemas, I'm about to imlplement gnu-regexp api into my validation
framework, and I'm curious if there might be one internal to JDOM...

Further to my last posting, the following more or less works:

  public org.jdom.Document transform(BufferedReader bufferedReader, String
    org.jdom.Document targetDoc = null;
      Processor processor = Processor.newInstance("xslt");
      Templates templates = processor.process(new InputSource(xslFileName));
      Transformer transformer = templates.newTransformer();
      DocumentBuilderFactory dFactory =

//      dfactory.setNamespaceAware(true);
      DocumentBuilder docBuilder = dFactory.newDocumentBuilder();
      org.w3c.dom.Document domDoc = docBuilder.newDocument();

      transformer.transform(new InputSource(bufferedReader), new
      DOMBuilder builder = new DOMBuilder();
      targetDoc = builder.build(domDoc);
    catch (Exception e)
    return targetDoc;

I write "more or less" because about 1 time in 3 it makes a mistake in
the document. If this were C code, I'd look for an unitialised variable, but
that is impossible in Java, isn't it?

Subject: [jdom-interest] xerces and jdom and Forte Transparent Persistence

I have a question related to the xerces, jdom, and dom question. I'm using
Forte for Java and Transparent Persistence. Forte has a persistence
framework and is using jaxp internally for processing xml documents. Also,
there is a parser.jar that has the org.w3c, and org.xml packages.

When I specify xerces.jar in the classpath, there is a conflict with the
org.w3c and javax.xml. packages, because they also appear in the xerces.jar.
Essentially, the framework is trying to use it's version of the parser and
when I specify xerces.jar it complains.

I get this problem when I instantiate a DOMBuilder and call the build method
[with a file parameter] to parse an xml document. Is it possible to use the
DOMBuilder class without using xerces, however using an adapter class that
uses the parser that is in the othe jar file??

I hope this makes sense - I really want to use JDom! I just need to be able
to parse XML docs without using xerces. I would abandon DOM altogether, but
unfortunately it is used by the framework that I am using, so I can't. If I
didn't have to use TP it would be a slam dunk! Can someone please help?!

Thanks in advance,

Subject: [jdom-interest] [Q}How to Applay XSL using Xalan2

Dear All:

I tried to apply XSL to JDOM Document. I read FAQ about using Xalan.
Then I made small example as follows.
But This programm stops at
     jdomOuter.output(docXSL, poutXSL);
Are there anything wrong in my code ?
Could you tell me them, please

I use JDK1.3 & JDOM-b5 & Xalan2.
