1 XML Catalog API

Use the Catalog API to implement a local XML catalog.

Java SE 9 introduces a new Catalog API to support the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) XML Catalogs, OASIS Standard V1.1. This guide describes the API, its support by the Java XML processors, and usage patterns.

The Catalog API is a straightforward API for implementing a local catalog, and the support by the JDK XML Processors makes it easier to configure your processors or the entire environment to take advantage of the feature.

Learning More About Creating Catalogs

To learn about creating catalogs, refer to the Catalog Standard. The XML catalogs under /etc/xml/catalog on certain Linux distributions can also be a good reference for creating a local catalog.
