It looks XMLEventFactory.newFactory(String factoryId, ClassLoader classLoader) does not work as expected.

As java doc, factoryId should be "Name of the factory to find, same as a property name".
But actually it is treated as "property value". See below test code. I believe the bug is similar with CR 6756677, which treat factoryId as property value for XMLInputFactory.

It happens for latest build of 7u4, 7u6 and 8. 

Simple test code:
package javax.xml.stream;

import javax.xml.stream.* ;

public class Test{
public static void main(String[] args){
    System.setProperty("inputFac", "javax.xml.stream.MyInputFactory") ;
    System.setProperty("outputFac", "javax.xml.stream.MyOutputFactory") ;
    System.setProperty("eventFac", "javax.xml.stream.MyEventFactory") ;
    XMLInputFactory xif = XMLInputFactory.newFactory("inputFac", null);
    System.out.println(xif.getClass().getName()) ;

    XMLOutputFactory xof = XMLOutputFactory.newFactory("outputFac", null);
    System.out.println(xof.getClass().getName()) ;

        XMLEventFactory xef1 = XMLEventFactory.newFactory("javax.xml.stream.MyEventFactory", null);
        System.out.println(xef1.getClass().getName()) ;

    //do not work
        XMLEventFactory xef2 = XMLEventFactory.newFactory("eventFac", null);
        System.out.println(xef2.getClass().getName()) ;

Verified with jdk7u40b33 promotion testing.

Joe, you pushed your fix in August and so it's in 7uX. This is the code name for builds that come from the jdk7u repo : http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7u/jdk7u/jaxp/rev/f9292d14967a RE are still using "7u14" as the update release number. We're going to switch over to 7u40 next week as a result of all the CPU releases. Communicaton and approval had to be sought to do that. Mail will be sent out to jdk_confidential alias about it shortly. Hope that answers your question. - Yes - it is in 7u14.. (b06) regards, Sean.

EVALUATION Patch is now in tl repo.

EVALUATION It looks like XMLEventFactory suffers the same issue as Input/Output factories.
