Description Ludovic Claude 2009-07-05 13:27:41 UTC
I have an issue with XMLStreamWriter. I have a test case which works perfectly with Sun 6 and Sun 5 + StAX reference implementation from, but it fails on GNU Classpath. The issue is that the validation seems too strong for the namespace, and it doesn't like writeNamespace() with a null prefix argument, although the documentation says:

> Writes a namespace to the output stream If the prefix argument to this method is the empty string, "xmlns", or null this method will delegate to writeDefaultNamespace

This is the result of running my test:

1) testWriter( illegal NCName: null

Hi Chris, I have created an updated patch which fixes this bug. There may be more issues with the XML Stream, in particular support for the XML stream 1.0.1 API is missing
