Subject Re: digester needs SAXParser.getXMLReader

hi simon

i think that this is a SAX/JAXP setup problem rather than a digester 

you need JAXP in your classpath. this is included with java 1.4 but not in 
previous jdk's.

i think that if you want to use crimson you need to include jaxp.jar 
(available from sun, i think). if you are using xerces then i think that 
you'll need to download a xml-api.jar compatible with the xerces version 
from full details on how to set up JAXP can be found in 
the documentation for the parser of your choice.
