The XML Registry is a facility for configuring and administering the
XML resources of WebLogic Server. XML resources include the default parser
and transformer factories and external entity resolution.
When you create an XML Registry, you can configure:
The classes that implement, by default, the parser and transformer
factories used by WebLogic Server applications to obtain an XML parser
or transformer. These classes will be used by default by all WebLogic
Server applications that parse or transform XML data. When you install
WebLogic Server, the default parser and transformer factory
implementations are those included in Sun's JDK Version 5.0.
The parser and transformer factory implementation classes used by a
particular XML document type, identified by either its public ID, system
ID, or root element.
How external entities, specified in an XML file, are resolved by
storing local copies of the entity at a location accessible by the
Managed Servers to cache external entities that are referenced with
a URL or a pathname. You can specify that the entity be cached as server
startup or when the entity is first referenced by an application.
You can target only one XML Registry to a particular WebLogic Server
