Using more recent Apache XML Security Libraries with JDK 6 or JDK 7

This question has come up in user forums quite a bit: "how can I use a more recent Apache XML Security library with the XML Signature APIs (JSR 105) in JDK 6 and JDK 7?"

Most of the time, you will not need to do this. Our JDK 6/7 XML Signature implementation is based on Apache XML Security and we try to keep up with the latest release. However, there may be a bug fix or new algorithm that you really need and are willing to depend on a more recent version of the Apache XML Security library that has that fix.  Here is what you need to do if so:

And that's it. You can also use the java.endorsed.dirs  system property to point to different directory containing the jars above.

Hope to see you at our Java Security BOF next week at JavaOne

Just a reminder that we'll be holding a BOF at this year's JavaOne conference on "New Security Features in JDK™ Releases 6 and 7".  It is on Wednesday at 6:45 PM in Gateway 102/103 in the Moscone Center. We plan to have a short presentation on the latest security features in JDK 6, JDK 7 and JavaFX. Then, we are going to show a demo of the new blacklist mechanism in the just-released JRE 6u14. The remaining time will be for Q&A so please bring your questions on Java Security as many members of Sun's Java Security team will be on hand to help answer them.
