        Description

        Name: eaR10174 Date: 08/27/2003


          The method DOMImplementation.createDocument() throws DOMException with the error code
        INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR in case when the all parameters are null (see test.java below).
        According to the method javadoc:
          
          Returns:
            A new Document object with its document element. If the NamespaceURI, qualifiedName,
            and doctype are null, the returned Document is empty with no document element.

        the method should return a Document object.

          The bug appears in jdk1.5.0beta-b16 and affects a new JCK1.5 test:

            public void run() {
                Document document = null;
                try {
                    document = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance()
                               .newDocumentBuilder().newDocument();
                } catch (Exception e) {
                    System.out.println("Can't create an empty document.");
                    return;
                }
            
                DOMImplementation implementation = document.getImplementation();

                try {
                    document = implementation.createDocument(null, null, null);
                
                    System.out.println("Method does not throw an exception.");
                } catch (DOMException e) {
                    if (e.code == DOMException.NAMESPACE_ERR) {
                        System.out.println("OK");
                    } else {
                        System.out.println("Unexpected error code of exception: " + e );
                    }
                }
            }
        }
