Hi John,

First, a note re: Java 1.5: Eddie Shin has recently been testing compiling and running the server in 1.5.  After renaming a few things that are now reserved keywords, and upgrading a few libraries (axis.jar, saaj.jar, jaxrpc.jar from the Axis 1.2 dist), he mentioned that things basically seemed to work, but he saw a few warnings from the server, so rolled back.  So I must preface this message with: We have NOT been testing with Java 1.5, so your mileage may vary.

Regarding the AElfred problem:  It's not good enough to just put the right parser in the classpath: you'll need to set some system properties to get it to use the correct parser.  In our code, this is all done in the .bat/.sh scripts that invoke java:


Just make sure you pass these to java when you invoke your program (or set them in your program before it does anything else) and it should work.

- Chris

Hi John,

I don't remember the reason why (Chris Wilper can tell you), but we got the
same (AElfred) error using the API-M when we deployed to the included Fedora
Tomcat container (a config, not version problem), once we used a stand-alone
Tomcat for our java app, the error dissappeared.

Subject: [Fedora-users] custom utility - SAXException with AElfred

I'm trying to build a simple utility to create an object, using some of the
fedora admin client code as a base/example (at first I was using
AutoIngestor, now I'm directly accessing the APIM). I'm running into the same
error no matter what I do regarding AElfred being a SAX2 XMLReader.
I'm in a Java 1.5 environment, and I'm thinking my Axis is somehow a later
version ("upgraded" to SAX2)? I have the client/lib/axis.jar in my class
path. Attached is an example of the FOXML (objXML below) I am attempting to
submit with the following lines of code:

String objXML=xml.toString();
ByteArrayInputStream in = new

ByteArrayOutputStream out = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
StreamUtility.pipeStream(in, out, 4096);

FedoraAPIM m_apim = APIMStubFactory.getStub("localhost", 8081, "fedoraAdmin",
"password"); m_apim.ingest(out.toByteArray(), "foxml1.0", "created with
jtoews code");

The object does seem to be created.

Any thoughts?
