    TestNG/SeamTest NPE in xml parsing

      I am trying to Unit test entities using SeamTest and TestNG. I have a strange problem in running TestNG(SeamTest). When I am connected to internet
      running a ant test throws a exception shown below.

       [testng] Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
       [testng] at org.testng.xml.Parser.parse(Parser.java:162)
       [testng] at org.testng.TestNG.setTestSuites(TestNG.java:472)
       [testng] at org.testng.TestNG.configure(TestNG.java:866)
       [testng] at org.testng.TestNG.privateMain(TestNG.java:822)
       [testng] at org.testng.TestNG.main(TestNG.java:802)

      When I detach from internet it throws an exception(below) but continues to run tests.

       [testng] java.net.UnknownHostException: hibernate.sourceforge.net
       [testng] at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.connect(PlainSocketImpl.java:177)

      I understand this is something to do with validating parsers, but both xerces/xml-api is not in my class path as I am using seam-gen based application.
