Finding Factory Classes in JAXP
By pelegri on Aug 08, 2006
Like earlier versions, the JAXP 1.4 API (Java.Net OSS project, spec, JavaDocs) includes a pluggability layer to switch implementations using a Factory pattern. The whole area is not very well understood by the developers, and Santiago's detailed blog provides a very good summary.
The intrinsic problem is that this is an area where the spec can be improved, so start preparing your feedback for the next version of the spec... we are going to do it all at Java.Net and a main focus will be improved usability.
