Description Mark Woodruff 2002-04-13 20:02:43 UTC
If a program using org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser attempts to parse a local
XML file that uses a local XSD schema and the schema has an error, the parser
reports the error but leaves the schema file opened and locked, which prevents
someone from editing the file to fix the problem. For example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<db xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

If db.xsd has a syntax error, the parser will report it correctly but leave
db.xsd opened and locked (rather than closing it as it should). Not a good thing
when the parser in question is being invoked inside an web server (e.g. TomCat).
