jQuery Question

White spaces are required between publicId and systemId

I am trying to make a ajax call to other domain locally from my computer by writing some proxy code in jsp. And this is my jQuery AJAX code that is calling proxy.jsp page.

var metadata = 'https://rest-search.host.com/machine/search/meta?id=';

var on_show_info= function() {

var AjaxCall = data + current_doc_info.id;
alert(AjaxCall);
request_meta_info = $.ajax({
url: "proxy.jsp?url=" + AjaxCall,
type: 'GET',
success: check,
error: error
});
};


And my JSP file is:-

<%@ page language="java" import="org.w3c.dom.*,javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder,javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory,java.net.*,java.io.*" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>
<%

String urlToQuery = request.getParameter("url");
System.out.println("rj " +urlToQuery);
URL url = new URL(urlToQuery);
final String login ="user";
final String password ="pass";

Authenticator.setDefault(new Authenticator() {
protected PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication() {
return new PasswordAuthentication (login, password.toCharArray());
}
});
URLConnection conn = url.openConnection();

InputStream in = conn.getInputStream();

DocumentBuilderFactory dbf=DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
DocumentBuilder db =dbf.newDocumentBuilder();
Document doc=db.parse(urlToQuery);


NodeList nl= doc.getElementsByTagName("attr");
%>


<%= nl.item(0).getFirstChild().getNodeValue() %>


And When I check the response, I am getting this error for the XML file it is parsing:

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"/>
<title>Error 500 White spaces are required between publicId and systemId.</title>

And the XMl file is this:-

<results><result><attr value="HW/SW" name="Line"/><attr value="ASIC" name="Description"/><attr value="CD" name="Number"/><attr value="AS" name="DocumentType"/><attr value="" name="Date"/><</result></results>


What wrong I am doing here.. Any suggestions will be appreciated..

Answer

The error message is actually correct if not obvious. It says that your DOCTYPE must have a SYSTEM identifier. I assume yours only has a public identifier.

You'll get the error with (for instance):

<!DOCTYPE persistence PUBLIC
    "http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/persistence/persistence_1_0.xsd">

You won't with:

<!DOCTYPE persistence PUBLIC
    "http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/persistence/persistence_1_0.xsd" "">

Notice "" at the end in the second one -- that's the system identifier. The error message is confusing: it should say that you need a system identifier, not that you need a space between the publicId and the (non-existent) systemId.

By the way, an empty system identifier might not be ideal, but it might be enough to get you moving.
