The Java SE XML documentation [1] contains many links to jaxp.java.net and jaxp release notes. Since java.net will be shut down on April 28, 2017, links to java.net need to be updated.  One way to fix this is to make a copy of the jaxp/www folder (30MB) and perform a replace-all for references to "jaxp.java.net" with relative (local) links. Note that some of jaxp files have already had a local copy, for example [2]. 

The issue applies to JDK 7 docs as well, albeit to a lesser extent. 

I'm reporting on behalf of JAXP, I do notice though that JAXWS/JAXB have similar issue with the links. Instead of be shut down however, JAXWS/JAXB will probably be migrated to GitHub.
