We have an older JWS application and we include some older jwsdp jars. One of them includes a xerces implementation.
In Java 7, when JAXP was going through the lookup process, it would find
jwsdp_xercesImpl.jar!/META-INF/services/javax.xml.validation.SchemaFactory, but would get a class not found exception on
However, after that, we saw messages that it was attempting to use the platform default XML Schema Validator.
In Java 8, however, we see a
javax.xml.validation.SchemaFactoryConfigurationError: Provider for class javax.xml.validation.SchemaFactory cannot be created
Caused by: java.util.ServiceConfigurationError: javax.xml.validation.SchemaFactory: jar:jwsdp_xercesImpl.jar!/META-INF/services/javax.xml.validation.SchemaFactory:1: Illegal provider-class name: http\://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema=com.sun.org.apache.xerces.internal.jaxp.validation.xs.SchemaFactoryImpl
Then it just fails -- i.e. it doesn't attempt to use the platform default XML Schema Validator.
My question is, is there a system property or jvm arg that we could set so that JAXP would fall back to trying the platform default XML schema validator in this case?
