Usage of Xerces classes generates instability with regard to app servers
------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: ODE-242
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ODE-242
             Project: ODE
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: BPEL Runtime
    Affects Versions: 1.2
         Environment: weblogic 9.2
            Reporter: Douglas Scott Jackson


Application servers typically include a version of xerces in their system classpath may conflict
with
the version used by Ode.  Altering the class loading hierarchy of an App Server such as weblogic
is
not supported.  This means that applications wishing to bundle or use Ode will have a tough
time
supporting different versions of the app server.  Applications may need to support multiple
versions
of application servers due to support policies.  Therefore using a technology like xerces
may inhibit
the adoption of Ode greatly.  In my experience higher level APIs (JAXB, JAXP, etc) are far
more likely
to work across multiple versions of servers.

An example of this is trying to use the current 1.2 version of Ode sources with Weblogic 9.2.
