Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3702) Remove xml-apis.jar because we no longer have to compile against jdk1.3
Date Mon, 02 Jun 2008 21:55:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3702?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12601772#action_12601772

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-3702:

For the record, I'm also able to build Derby without tools/java/xercesImpl.jar. I think that's
a side-effect of Xerces being included as part of the Java runtime libraries in Sun's Java
1.4.2 and therefore part of my java14compile.classpath. I don't think we can rely on those
classes being there in later JDKs (they were moved to another package in Java 1.5 in order
to avoid conflicts with newer Xerces versions installed by the users) or in JDKs from other
vendors, so I guess that jar file should be left in the repository for now.

I have built Derby without this jar file and run the regression tests under Java 5 and jdk1.4:
they passed cleanly for me in both environments. I believe we can remove this jar file, which
was added in revision 395643 in order to compile the xml support under jdk1.3--we no longer
support that platform.
