[xsl] Java XPathAPI and namespace resolution related question

Hi List,

We moved to a newer version of our Java Application Server and the code
which was working earlier is not working anymore. I believe it must be
"namespace" related.

My xml looks like
<root xmlns="http://x.com/rootMeta";   xmlns:xsi
="http://www.w3.org/2000/10/XMLSchema-instance"; xsi:schemaLocation

     <element name="XY">
          <details>XY details</details>

In my Java code now I am adding namespace prefix info (e.g. xs:)

(here the rootNode is obtained by loading the XML as Document and getting
the Node by getDocumentElement())

            xpathStr = "//xs"+element+"[@name='XY']";

            PrefixResolver prefixResolver = new MyPrefixResolver(rootNode);
            XObject xobj = XPathAPI.eval(rootNode,xpathStr,prefixResolver);
           nl = xobj.nodelist();

MyPrefixResolver has
  public String getNamespaceForPrefix(String prefix){
    String ns = "http://x.com/rootMeta";;
    return ns;

I am not getting any nodes back in NodeList (nl). I have verified by some
other means and it does not seem to be a data issue.

I must be missing something. Any help would be appreciated.
