Description Ryan Lubke 2002-04-21 18:45:41 UTC
Page 13-172 pf the PFD spec states that one of the valid input objects to the
xml attribute of <x:parse> is an instance of javax.xml.transform.Source.

Resulting stacktrace:
javax.servlet.jsp.JspTagException: Unrecognized object supplied as 'xmlText'
attribute to <parse>


Additionally the error message could use some cleanup as 'xmlText' is not a
valid attribute.

I've updated the summary to be generic.  The <x:parse> action is only
able to parse input sources of String or Reader.

Any of the other input sources:

   -Object exported by <x:parse>, <x:set>, or <x:transform>

Will fail.

Funny, I just questioned this in the spec; I believe it is a spec typo.  I'll 
follow up once I hear back from Pierre,
Comment 3 Shawn Bayern 2002-04-23 19:48:49 UTC
To be changed in the spec.
