I am extracting XML from a dbase and using jstl xml tag library to parse and display the xml.  The problem I have is that the XML contains a DOCTYPE with a relative DTD declaration eg.

<!DOCTYPE CustomerLoopService SYSTEM "CustomerLoopService.dtd">

As I do not have the DTD and no one knows where it is I get the following error when parsing.

java.io.FileNotFoundException: Could not resolve entity reference: "CustomerLoopService.dtd"
      at weblogic.xml.jaxp.ChainingEntityResolver.resolveEntity(ChainingEntityResolver.java:87)
      at weblogic.apache.xerces.readers.DefaultEntityHandler.startReadingFromExternalEntity(DefaultEntityHandler.java:768)
      at weblogic.apache.xerces.readers.DefaultEntityHandler.startReadingFromExternalSubset(DefaultEntityHandler.java:583)
      at weblogic.apache.xerces.framework.XMLDTDScanner.scanDoctypeDecl(XMLDTDScanner.java:1161)
      at weblogic.apache.xerces.framework.XMLDocumentScanner.scanDoctypeDecl(XMLDocumentScanner.java:2189)

      at weblogic.apache.xerces.framework.XMLDocumentScanner.parseSome(XMLDocumentScanner.java:399)
      at weblogic.apache.xerces.framework.XMLParser.parse(XMLParser.java:1147)
      at weblogic.apache.xerces.jaxp.DocumentBuilderImpl.parse(DocumentBuilderImpl.java:203)
      at weblogic.xml.jaxp.RegistryDocumentBuilder.parse(RegistryDocumentBuilder.java:144)

What I want to know is rather than stripping out the line

<!DOCTYPE CustomerLoopService SYSTEM "CustomerLoopService.dtd">

Can I specify to the <x:parse tag that I want it to be non validating and as a result ignore the DTD declaration ?

Thanks

I guess not but maybe you can generate the dtd from the XML if you have a good one.
