Description Jaroslav Tulach 2007-02-05 09:26:21 UTC
While thinking about 3rd party libraries I have found out that there is 
and I do not understand the need for it. It contains three classes:
however these classes do not seem to be needed by anyone. The xerces-2.8.0 
does not require them. The JDK6 javadoc does not have such package at all:

That is why I think this package is a just a relict of a past and can be 
deleted. If nobody objects, I'll delete it on Thursday, Feb 8, 2007.

It's true the JDK Javadoc doesn't list that package, but JDK 5 and 6 include it
nonetheless. (I will file a bug about that.) We used to bundle this JAR because
Xerces links against it (org.apache.xerces.dom.DocumentImpl implements it) but
JDK 1.4 does not include it. I guess this dependency is safe to remove now;
currently libs/xerces/build.xml#verify-class-linkage reports only

Warning: org.apache.xerces.util.XMLCatalogResolver cannot access
Warning: org.apache.xerces.util.XMLCatalogResolver cannot access
Warning: org.apache.xerces.util.XMLCatalogResolver cannot access

which is probably OK.

BTW you forgot to actually delete libs/external/xml-commons-dom-ranges-1.0.b2*,
could you do that please?

I should mention that Xerces 2.9.0 is the current release, we should really
upgrade to it.

I filed Java bug #6523066 about the lack of documentation of this package.
