Yes indeed, it needs javax.xml.transform which is part of JAXP 1.1
Sorry about this. I will change it to reference directly something else more
widespreaded (Xalan 1 ?)
I need to set explicitely the system ids and the current XSLTLiaison
wrappers do not allows such things, since they assume we are dealing with
file URI. So I choose JAXP 1.1 which should be released soon, but this is
too new and will certainly cause problems. Dealing with libraries version
starts to be a real pain these days because of different things.

mm.. there is a src/bin which contains antRun and so on. Where did you get
the source from ?

mm.. this is not very clear to me.

An another pair of eyes is unvaluable.
