[jdom-interest] JDOM, Resin 2.0.13 org.jdom.*

I've read this thread. It suggests that the problem is Neko. In my 
example I am using org.jdom.input.SAXBuilder(). Is that not part of 
JDOM? Or is some oter library being called in some fashion?

I see calls to com.caucho.xml.* in the stack trace. Does JDOM access 
outside parsers in some fashion?


check out this thread:

It suggests that the problem is with the XML parser, not JDOM.


I'm not so sure how to add to my original problem via email. This is the
stack trace. I am using JDOM1.0 from http://www.jdom.org/dist/binary/.

I have a jsp file listed below (and running here:
http://www.clandecadence.com/john/jdom.jsp). I am using the JDOM 1.0
release against an Atom.xml file (located here:
http://jrosocha.blogspot.com/atom.xml ).

Locally on my pc, running Tomcat 5.5.9 Server, Resin 2.1.14 and 3.0.13,
this file executes fine with : [Document: No DOCTYPE declaration, Root
is [Element: ]] as output.

Running at the supplied URL above (
http://www.clandecadence.com/john/jdom.jsp ), this file executes with
the following error: Error: org.jdom.IllegalNameException: The name
"xml:lang" is not legal for JDOM/XML attributes: Attribute names cannot
contain colons.

I can not figure out how or why this is the case. My local apps run
fine, but when deployed to my lunarpages host, things fall apart. I've
tried several different ways to build the document with JDOM and all
fail in the same fashion.

Can anyone help me?
jsp file below ------------

try {
java.net.URL atomURL = new
org.jdom.input.SAXBuilder domSaxBuilder = new org.jdom.input.SAXBuilder();
org.jdom.Document atomDocument = domSaxBuilder.build(
atomURL.openStream() );
} catch (Exception e)
out.print("Error: " + e);
