Forcing local dtds

Hi all,
I'm using jboss 3.2.3 and I'm trying to deploying an ear in Jboss. All goes well if the machine with jboss is connected to internet, but if not xerces tries to download the needed dtd during the deploy, throwing a "connection timeout" error. I've read that you can eliminate DOCTYPE from xml descriptor in ear, but for us in not an option. Is there a way to force the use of local dtds without changing the DOCTYPE of every xml in ear?
Thanks in advance.

JBoss uses a dtd cache, but if your DTD isn't one of the recognised DTD which it caches, then it will always go to the net, or try to.
THere's a whole list of which DTDs JBoss caches, hard-coded in

I have seen things you people would not believe, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, c-beams sparkling in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.
I agree. Here's the link:
