Subject Axis can't run in JDK 1.3, Tomcat is instable in JDK 1.4
Date Wed, 19 Jun 2002 21:00:52 GMT
Its a really really bad news,

I just installed Tomcat 4 (v4.0 and 4.1 are the same thing) under JDK1.4.0_01 
The examples included in Tomcat package were running perfectly. However, when 
I try to write one, with extended feature (such as using the latest mm.mysql 
JDBC driver), it start to behave erratically by showing this "Internal Server 
Error" error message. Turns out, this behavior is also mentioned in Tomcat's 
documentation (reference below) Then I installed JDK1.3.1_03 and restart 
Tomcat to run under it. Turns out, it runs PERFECTLY SMOOTH without further 
modification on my code.

Now I'm trying to install Apache Axis-beta-2 to Tomcat. Followed the Axis 
installation procedure, and everything went correctly until I can access the 
Axis's AdminServer from browser. Now, when I try to deploy a .jws file into 
Axis directory, I can't access it at all, showing another "Internal Server 
Error" with all error messages pointing to Axis 
(org.apache.axis.transport.http.HTTPSender.invoke). I thought this is due to 
my JDK1.3, so I downloaded the entire source code from CVS, and I found that 
AXIS REQUIRES CLASSES SPECIFIC TO JDK1.4, such as (org.xml.sax, 
javax.xml.parser,  etc)

My goal is to make Tomcat run STABLE in AXIS, but now I am in complete 
deadlock here. Anybody care to share? 


- Tomcat Documentation:
RELEASE-NOTES-4.0.2-B3.txt, last paragraph
"Tomcat 4.0 and Sun JDK 1.4 beta 3:
Some unpredictable classloading behavior has been reported when Tomcat is
used with Sun JDK 1.4. For this reason, it is recommended to use this release
of Tomcat with Sun JDK 1.3.1."
