EVALUATION org.apache.xalan.serialize.CharInfo.XML_ENTITIES_RESOURCE is defined as public static final String XML_ENTITIES_RESOURCE = "XMLEntities.res"; in 1.4.2_06, while it is defined as public static String XML_ENTITIES_RESOURCE = "XMLEntities.res"; in 1.4.2. Since XML_ENTITIES_RESOURCE is changed to final, this is the reason why developers can't assign value to XML_ENTITIES_RESOURCE through Jav Plug-in anymore. Reassign it to JAXP team for further evaluation to determine if the API change is intentional. ###@###.### 2005-1-24 20:11:18 GMT API change is intentional at both Sun & Apache. This change is part of a security fix. Bug is being closed. ###@###.### 2005-03-25 20:20:13 GMT Opening this bug again. This is an escalated problem and customer wants the fix in 1.4.2 update release. A binary with the following changes was provided to customer for testing and customer confirmed back that it resolves their problem. ------- SerializerToHTML.java ------- 81a82,83 > import java.security.*; > 101,102c103,111 < protected static CharInfo m_htmlcharInfo = < new CharInfo(CharInfo.HTML_ENTITIES_RESOURCE); --- > protected static CharInfo m_htmlcharInfo = null; > > static { > m_htmlcharInfo = (CharInfo)AccessController.doPrivileged(new PrivilegedAction() { > public Object run() { > return new CharInfo(CharInfo.HTML_ENTITIES_RESOURCE); > } > }); > } ------- SerializerToXML.java ------- 92a93,94 > import java.security.*; > 292,293c294,302 < protected static CharInfo m_xmlcharInfo = < new CharInfo(CharInfo.XML_ENTITIES_RESOURCE); --- > protected static CharInfo m_xmlcharInfo = null; > > static { > m_xmlcharInfo = (CharInfo)AccessController.doPrivileged(new PrivilegedAction() { > public Object run() { > return new CharInfo(CharInfo.XML_ENTITIES_RESOURCE); > } > }); > } This fix will be integrated into 1.4.2_09 b01. ###@###.### 2005-04-18 05:27:07 GMT
