Subject the saga continues: cocoon2rc1a with tomcat4.0 (as a service on win2K)
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2001 13:27:56 GMT
This is a continuation of a thread begun yesterday on cocoon-users. I've 
cross posted in the hopes that the feedback and solutions will be quicker.

According to various sources, cocoon2rc1a and tomcat4 can be run together if:
- crimson.jar and jaxp.jar in the tomcat_home/common/lib directory are 
replaced by xerxes and xalan from the cocoon2 distribution.
- all other steps in the build, install documentation are completed as 
documented for tomcat4.0

this enables the cocoon demo pages to be run, provided the tomcat server is 
operating in console mode.

On win2k it is possible to run tomcat as a service. Because of issues with 
classpaths when running as a service, the cocoon servlet environment does 
not work. notes this problem and 
suggests changes to a file called tomcat_home\conf\ to 
update classpath information regarding xerxes and xalan presumably.

Unfortunately does not exist in my/the tomcat4.0 
distribution. this is the windows MSI installation package. 
( does not exist in the zip distribution either, by the way.)

Can anyone suggest
- whether classpaths are in fact the issue with cocoon2, tomcat and win2k 
- where to find the file(s) in tomcat that duplicate the functionality of with respect to classpaths?

thanks for your help.                    ...edN
