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. In particular, you use the XML registry to specify:
javax.xml.parsers.SaxParserFactoryinterfaces; these implementing classes are used to parse XML in DOM and SAX mode, respectively.
javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactoryinterface, used to transform XML documents.
You can create as many XML Registries as you like; however, you can associate only one XML registry with a particular instance of WebLogic Server.
If an instance of WebLogic Server does not have an XML registry associated with it, then the default parser and transformer are used when parsing or transforming documents.
Note: The default parser and transformer are those included in the JDK Version 5.0.
Once you associate an XML registry with an instance of WebLogic Server, all its configuration options are available for XML applications that use that server.
To create a new XML registry and associate it with a WebLogic Server instance:
javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactoryinterface in the Document Builder Factory field.
javax.xml.parsers.SaxParserFactoryinterface in the SAX Parser Factory field.
javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactoryinterface in the Transformer Factory field.
