I believe that you've probably got two versions of xerces on your
classpath somewhere...

Subject: xerces.jar vs. xercesImpl.jar

I am surprised to find that axis seems to require a specific parser -
xerces, and will not accept xercesImpl. I thought both would be JAXP 1.1
compliant parsers, as the set-up instructions describe:

"In the WEB-INF directory, you'll find a "lib" directory.  

In this directory, copy the jars associated with the JAXP 1.1 XML
compliant parser of your choice. We recommend xerces jars from the
xml-xerces distribution, though others work."

When I try to compile wsdl or run an axis client with xercesImpl.jar in
the classpath instead of xerces.jar, I get:

     [java] java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/w3c/dom/Node

Any ideas why this incompatibility exists?
