Ok, I figured out the following working configurations if we want to use

1.) Lenya + xalan-2.6.0 + Tomcat 4.1.x and Tomcat 5.x
The endorsed dir MUST contain the following libs:
- xalan-2.6.0
- xerces
- xmlapis

2.) Lenya + xalan-2.6.0 and Jetty
- endorsed MUST not contain the xalan-2.6.0.jar, so it should be empty
and all libs are placed in lenya/WEB-INF/lib.

Comment to 1.) :

It was not possible to place all libs in lenya/WEB-INF/lib, because on
Lenya login screen I got the following Tomcat log entry:

	at org.apache.xalan.xsltc.compiler.XSLTC.<init>(

This error also occures if the xalan,xerces and xmlapis are placed in

I now moved jakarta-bcel.jar to endorsed and I got this one:
