Hi all,

I'm working on a project which includes SaxonEE, but allows the user to use SaxonHE if they don't have a Saxon license.    Our "no license" code path uses net.sf.saxon.TransformerFactoryImpl.

I'm getting a license error where I don't think I should be getting one.  Here are the 2 scenarios
  1. No license, sourcing SaxonEE jar
    1. Uses net.sf.saxon.TransformerFactoryImpl
    2. Code gets reference to IdentityTransformer
    3. Get license error when attempting transform:
net.sf.saxon.trans.LicenseException: License file saxon-license.lic not found. Tried in file:/Users/rona6028/.m2/repository/net/sf/saxon/saxon-ee/, and classpath

at net.sf.saxon.IdentityTransformer.transform(IdentityTransformer.java:30)
at com.rackspace.papi.components.translation.xslt.xmlfilterchain.XmlFilterChainExecutor.executeChain(XmlFilterChainExecutor.java:158)

  1. No license, sourcing SaxonHE jar
    1. Uses net.sf.saxon.TransformerFactoryImpl
    2. Gets reference to IdentityTransformer
    3. No license error with transform.
The only difference is referencing the SaxonHE jar vs the SaxonEE jar.  Am I mistaken that this isn't working as expected?
