[jdom-interest] JDOM and Oracle V2 Parser

Well, the bug only happens when taking a DOM built by the Oracle parser
and passing it to JDOM for conversion.  So it seems a proper workaround
would be to simply remove the <?xml?> PI from the DOM tree before
passing it to the DOMBuilder.  This won't work if you're using
DOMBuilder to build from a file, but you really shouldn't ever do that. 
Does that help?

So, the question is, I wanted to know if there was a work around when using the DOM parser (via the OracleV2DOMAdaptor) for Oracle for the IllegalTargetException issue (I know it is an Oracle bug, but we really cannot use a different parser).

I have read through the archives about the issue regarding IllegalAccessException and the reasons behind why it is occurring.  My question is, is there a work around to this, so we can use JDOM in conjunction with the Oracle Parser?  I searched the archives, but could find nothing addressing this.
