org.apache.commons.digester.digester fatalerror

Hi everyone,

I'm unable to parse an XML file I've created using the commons Digester when I use an xsd file vs. a dtd file.

Is anyone aware of any known issues with this?


I'm using commons-digester-1.7. When I try to validate the xml file against the xsd, I get the following error -


"2006-06-29 14:50:38,714 ERROR org.apache.commons.digester.Digester - Parse Fatal Error at line 1 column 3: The markup declarations contained or pointed to by the document type declaration must be well-formed.


org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The markup declarations contained or pointed to by the document type declaration must be well-formed."


The xml file seems to validate properly against a dtd. Also, the xsd file is incomplete, I know, and I was expecting to get an error - just not the one I got. The error I ended up getting when I tried to parse the xml file leads me to believe there may be a problem with the Digester working with xsd files. I just want to verify that this is the case before I continue writing this xsd. If not, please let me know what I'm doing wrong and I'll keep going. (The dtd I validated against was complete - btw.)





Below are snippets of relevant code -


//Java code that creates the digester and calls parse


        String configPath = "/WEB-INF/classes/uwaf-config.xml";

        digester = new Digester();




        digester.addRuleSet(new ConfigRuleSet());



        InputStream input = null;

        URL url = getServletContext().getResource(configPath);

        InputSource is = new InputSource(url.toExternalForm());

        input = url.openStream();
