Did you mean it was later changed to othervm? The initial check-in 
record shows it wasn't [1]

othervm provents the potential interference by other tests that also set 
the system property, and therefore removes the need for a further 
refactoring of the code. So this is not required, but you may remove the 
SAX driver setting and use a new instance instead, e.g.
     SAXSource saxSource = new SAXSource(new TestSAXDriver(), new 
InputSource(new StringReader(xml)));
