Subject RE: Runtime bugs in current CVS base?
Date Tue, 29 May 2001 20:07:24 GMT
Hi Darrel,

If you're using Ant 1.3, go to: \jakarta-ant-1.3\docs\manual\install.html
and look at the 2nd paragraph under System Requirements. In short, you
probably need to move the jaxp.jar and parser.jar out of the
\jakarta-ant-1.3\lib directory.

By running:

javap -classpath parser.jar org.w3c.dom.Element

in the lib directory, it appears that the parser.jar contains a
non-namespace-aware DOM implementation.
