/**
 * Factory that creates {@link Schema} objects. Entry-point to
 * the validation API.
 *
 * <p>
 * {@link SchemaFactory} is a schema compiler. It reads external
 * representations of schemas and prepares them for validation.
 * 
 * <p>
 * The {@link SchemaFactory} class is not thread-safe. In other words,
 * it is the application's responsibility to ensure that at most
 * one thread is using a {@link SchemaFactory} object at any
 * given moment. Implementations are encouraged to mark methods
 * as <tt>synchronized</tt> to protect themselves from broken clients.
 * 
 * <p>
 * {@link SchemaFactory} is not re-entrant. While one of the
 * <code>newSchema</code> methods is being invoked, applications
 * may not attempt to recursively invoke the <code>newSchema</code> method,
 * even from the same thread.
 * 
 * <h2><a name="schemaLanguage"></a>Schema Language</h2>
 * <p>
 * This spec uses a namespace URI to designate a schema language.
 * The following table shows the values defined by this specification.
 * <p>
 * To be compliant with the spec, the implementation 
 * is only required to support W3C XML Schema 1.0. However,
 * if it chooses to support other schema languages listed here,
 * it must conform to the relevant behaviors described in this spec.
 * 
 * <p>
 * Schema languages not listed here are expected to
 * introduce their own URIs to represent themselves.  
 * The {@link SchemaFactory} class is capable of locating other
 * implementations for other schema languages at run-time.
 * 
 * <p>
 * Note that because the XML DTD is strongly tied to the parsing process
 * and has a significant effect on the parsing process, it is impossible
 * to define the DTD validation as a process independent from parsing. 
 * For this reason, this specification does not define the semantics for
 * the XML DTD. This doesn't prohibit implementors from implementing it
 * in a way they see fit, but <em>users are warned that any DTD
 * validation implemented on this interface necessarily deviate from
 * the XML DTD semantics as defined in the XML 1.0</em>.

     *     is present (where <i>schemaLanguage</i> is the parameter
     *     to this method), then its value is read
     *     as a class name. The method will try to
     *     create a new instance of this class by using the class loader,
     *     and returns it if it is successfully created.
     *   </li>
     *   <li>
     *     <code>$java.home/lib/jaxp.properties</code> is read and
     *     the value associated with the key being the system property above
     *     is looked for. If present, the value is processed just like above.
     *   </li>
     *   <li>
     *     <p>The class loader is asked for service provider provider-configuration files matching
     *     <code>javax.xml.validation.SchemaFactory</code> in the resource directory META-INF/services.
     *     See the JAR File Specification for file format and parsing rules.
     *     Each potential service provider is required to implement the method:</p>
     *     <pre>
     *        {@link #isSchemaLanguageSupported(String schemaLanguage)}
     *     </pre> 
     *     The first service provider found in class loader order that supports the specified schema language is returned.
     *   </li>
     *   <li>
     *     Platform default <code>SchemaFactory</code> is located
     *     in a implementation specific way. There must be a platform default
     *     <code>SchemaFactory</code> for W3C XML Schema.
     *   </li>
     * </ol>

     * <p>See {@link java.util.Properties#load(java.io.InputStream)} for
     * exactly how a property file is parsed. In particular, colons ':'
     * need to be escaped in a property file, so make sure schema language
     * URIs are properly escaped in it. For example:</p>
