I am working on an application using/ running on Java 7 (compiling to Java 6)/ Tomcat 6/ Spring 3.1. I have a couple of places in the source where I create a javax.xml.validation.SchemaFactory and javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory. One of my dependencies is stax-api and its jar contains an old versions of some javax.xml classes that incompatible with my code where I am creating the factories as I use new methods and constants. Spring also had a dependency on another jar that contained another version of javax.xml (although I couldn't find the source code to verify this). I excluded the spring dependency from Ivy and that seems ok at the moment. What can be done about stax?


Isn't it always the way. You spend ages searching for an answer and then as soon as you post a forum question you find the answer. Stax was incorporated into Java 6 (or a previous version) and the separate stax-api jar is no longer required.
