    XML Parsing Error: duplicate attribute in wsdl definitions with jboss versions of xerces and xalan

    michael-s Newbie

      We are using a feature of spring ws (version1.5.9) to serve wsdl files to the browser or to a client.

      Our wsdl file has custom namespace prefixes like this: 

      {code:xml}<wsdl:definitions xmlns:wsdl="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/" xmlns:bsf="http:/... >{code}

      It works in JBoss 5.1 and eap 6.0.0 but with JBoss 7.1.1 or the current 7.2 snapshot I get the following error when I enter the wsdl URL in the browser:


      XML Parsing Error: duplicate attribute

      Location: http://localhost:8080/sc-webservices/service/loginServiceWS.wsdl

      Line Number 1, Column 671:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><wsdl:definitions xmlns:wsdl="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/" xmlns:bsf="http://


      The wsdl served to the browser contains duplicates of the custom namespace prefixes defined in the original wsdl file packaged in a war inside an ear. Is this a bug in JBoss AS7 or do we have to change the configuration somehow?

      While debugging I only saw classes from jboss versions of xerces and xalan. Can I use different versions of xerces and xalan than the ones in jboss modules without breaking jboss functionality?
