I've gone through the spec changes and webrev and this is good work. I
also agree with the option #3 that you proposed in one of the previous
mails. A few small comments:
In XMLEventFactory.newInstance the current wording is "Same as
newFactory", I think it might be better if re-worded to: "Creates a new
instance of the factory in exactly the same manner as the newFactory
In XMLEventFactory.newFactory (also in XMLInputFactory and
XMLOutputFactory) then it adds normative statements to specify that
lib/jaxp.properties is checked when lib/stax.properties is not present.
We need flexibility to change the layout of the JRE/JDK image so I think
it would be better to leave this out of the spec.
Otherwise I think this is good to go.
