Today on IRC someone reported they could not get v3 to work (admin console would not come up).  They ran into this error:

After spending some time looking into this, I finally found this post after doing a google search (should have done this first):

Which showed that using JDK 1.6.0_18-ea (at least on linux) does not work with GlassFish v3.  Downgrading to the latest stable release (1.6.0_16) solved that person's problem, it also solved the person's problem on IRC.

EVALUATION Fixed in jaxp 1.4. Request for integration. Original fix for issue 38 was 6631274.

EVALUATION SJSXP had an incomplete support for the optional method XMLInputFactory#createXMLStreamReader(Source source), which was reported in sjsxp issue 38 ( The change was then to remove the support and add a complete support in a future time as requested with sjsxp issue 39 ( This change, however, has caused regression in applications such as GlassFish v3. A quick fix for the issue would be to restore the code that supports StreamSource, but through UnsupportedOperationException for other sources.
