It depends.

Ant needs a JAXP 1.1 compliant parser and it needs the JAXP classes

In the reference implementation of JAXP 1.1, the "the JAXP classes
themselves" are in jaxp.jar and Ant 1.4.1 includes this.

The latest releases of Crimson and Xerces-J contain "the JAXP classes
themselves" in their "main JARs" (crimson.jar or xerces.jar), so no
extra jaxp.jar is required.  Ant's nightly builds ship with Crimson
1.1.3 (which is the latest release and a bug fix release when compared
to JAXP 1.1 reference).

Finally, JDK 1.4 comes with built-in JAXP classes - no jaxp.jar in
