Mauro,

    I have taken a very quick look at the source. In StartupHelper on line
720 you have:

        public void characters(char[] buf, int start, int length) throws
SAXParseException {
            String s = new String(buf, start, length).trim();
            currentValue.append(s);
        }

A SAX parser is allowed to make multiple calls to characters (e.g. it could
make one call per character). So the trim() call will produce a result which
can differ between parsers. It's better to accumulate the characters in the
StringBuffer and call trim in the end element callback.

>From a XML-RPC project point of view this code adds dependencies to Log4J
and JDK 1.2 or better. We have discussed moving from JDK 1.1 on this list
before in when we looked at moving from Hashtable to HashMap and there was
strong objection from some of the user community (applet and J2ME users).


Logging is an interesting issue - I think we should chew it over on rpc-dev
before adopting a standard solution.

I have cross posted this reply to rpc-dev as the JDK 1.2 and Log4J
discussion is probably better conducted there.
