I have had a problem in using DCXJP seemingly similar to yours.

Here is the description of the problem I encountered when using DCXJP.

In DCXJP, you can specify whether whitespaces are to be preserved
until they gets to the calling application with setPreserveWhiteSpace(true).

However, if setPreserveWhiteSpace(true) is used with DCXJP's DTDValidatingParser,
the parser reports errors (e.g. "element 'person' cannot have text data") for
elements whose content model does not include #PCDATA but contains whitespaces
in its instance. It appears there is a bug in validation module in DCXJP.
