Subject XML APIs JAR
Date Wed, 23 Nov 2011 21:40:26 GMT
We have a situation in Websphere 6.1 where there is a class loading problem with an Axis2 1.5.2
web service.  The class loading is set to PARENT_LAST on the web app.  That is the first
thing I always do with Axis2 web services running on Websphere.

We've determined that the class loading problem comes from the fact that classes are missing
that were in prior versions of Axis2.  These were in the xml-apis-1.3.04.jar file in Axis2
version 1.4.1.  The specific class causing the problem is org.w3c.dom.Notation.  It is no
longer present in the Axis2 1.5.2 WAR and causes a linkage error.

Manually adding the xml-apis-1.3.04.jar file from the Axis2 1.4.1 distribution to the Axis2
1.5.2 web application cures the problem.

Why was this JAR removed in newer versions?  How do I get around this error, apart from manually
adding a JAR from a prior distribution?  There must be a better way.

Any guidance is appreciated.
