Is there any reason why ANT 1.7 still distributes Xerces 2.6.2 in its
lib [1] ? While the current release version of Xerces is 2.8 with
support for DOM Level 3, Schema Validation, Not to mention the bug fixes.

Last time i tried to compile code that uses the DOM Level 3 API, the
xml-apis.jar in ant/lib got in the way and i had to use
java.endorsed.dirs mechanism in ANT_OPTS.

PS: I have not downloaded the 1.7, i am not sure if the ANT downloads
later versions of Xerces from repositories at build time.
