Mukul Gandhi commented on XERCESJ-1689:
---------------------------------------

I disagree, that org.w3c.dom.html.HTMLDOMImplementation should be removed from 
xercesImpl.jar, given your arguments. I haven't verified, that in which version 
of JDK org.w3c.dom.html.HTMLDOMImplementation was introduced (you say its JDK 
1.7. I'd assume that you're right).

As we know Xerces supports JDK 1.3 (on the trunk) & 1.4 (on XSD 1.1 branch) as 
well. If we remove org.w3c.dom.html.HTMLDOMImplementation from Xerces, how 
would we support JDKs prior to JDK 1.7?

> The interface {{org.w3c.dom.html.HTMLDOMImplementation}} is part of the JDK 
> since Java {{1.7}}.
> Java 1.7 has been EOL 'ed since a long time.
>  Is there any reason to keep this interface in {{xercesImpl.jar}}? It 
> produces a split package:
> {{xerces-2_11_0: jdeps --jdk-internals -cp ./xercesImpl.jar}}
>  {{split package: org.w3c.dom.html [jrt:/jdk.xml.dom, ./xercesImpl.jar]}}
> which prevents people from using modules in Java {{>= 9}}.
