For those who read my blog, I released an open-source project a couple of days ago for working with XML using DynaBeans from BeanUtils.
Today, while working with XML directly, I discovered that some older XML parsers, such as older versions of the Xerces parser, do not actually support all of the methods of Node that are required. Here’s a comparison:
Java 1.4 – Node
Java 1.5 – Node
To help deal with this, I’ve released a new version of XmlBeanUtils today with support for legacy XML parsers.
I’ve also gone through and added javadoc. My next step will be to put it up on a maven repository, that should be coming in the next few days but I probably won’t post a notification so keep an eye on the XmlBeanUtils site.
