This is not an error: it was done on purpose. SAXOutputter builds a DTD string
from the DocType found in the document and handed it to a parser for that
parser to fire the DTD events. Of course, there is no root element because
SAXOutputter will fired the SAX events related to the JDOM document just after
the parser reported a SAXParseException. This exception is expected as shown
by the comments in the catch() clause just after the call to
What's weird in your case is that Xerces fires an IndexOutOfBoundException
instead of the expected SAXParseException. Which version of Xerces are you
using? Is your DTD file correct (i.e. parsed successfully by the same parser
when directly referenced from an XML document)?
