The problem here is a design flaw in Xerces. It assumes you will only 
ever want one parser configuration in the same VM. (This is not an 
XMLReader. This is an internal, non-standard class in Xerces.) Thus 
once the parser configuration has been set through the appropriate 
system property or default, you're stuck with it for all your Xerces 
parsing. Possibly you could change the system property in your code, 
but I'm not sure whether that would work or not.
