Subject RE: extra bcel jar
Date Mon, 29 Mar 2004 20:22:43 GMT
I had problems with Xalan and Weblogic Portal 8.1 quite a while ago.  Xalan
started including XSLTC in xalan.jar. XSLTC uses bcel and a couple other
classes that are also used by Weblogic Portal's "Java Page Flow". When
xalan.jar was put in java's lib/endorsed the portal would not start. Without
it, the JDK 1.4 default version of xalan was used which would cause Cocoon
to have problems.  The Xalan team ended up creating two versions so that
lib/endorsed could be safely overridden, but the XSLTC part is still a

I would suggest that someone open a bugzilla report with them and get them
to create a version without the dependent jars.

Well, at a very least everything is under the ASL and in sync now... 
wouldn't Gump be able to spot the problem if we miss a cycle?
