      Description

      Similar to XCOMMONS-1891.

      Java Xerces is pretty much dead since a long time, and it is not supposed to bring any value anymore compared to standard Java implementation (and might actually cause problems).

      We should probably also get rid of xml-apis and xml-apis-ext.

      Note that Java 8 still have some problems which are fixed by Xerces (like XCOMMONS-1373) so we need to upgrade our minimum supported version of Java 11 before we can fully get rid of Xerces.
