Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1923) XML operators - Xalan requirement
Date Mon, 13 Jul 2009 13:05:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1923?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12730334#action_12730334

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-1923:

The patch looks like a good improvement to me. +1 to commit.

The sentence below may perhaps confuse some users into thinking that xalan.jar is the only
jar file needed, whereas it in fact depends on serializer.jar being located in the same directory.

> (...) download and install a binary distribution of Xalan from Apache and place the xalan.jar
file in your classpath.

Would it be worth mentioning that xalan.jar automatically wires other required jars in the
same directory into the classpath so that no one is tempted to remove the other jars?

But anyway, +1 to commit the patch as it is. If we decide so, an extra sentence could be added

> From Daniel Debrunner:
> The XML operators and data type include text about requiring Xalan etc. When trying out
XML I felt lost at this point because there was no information on what I was meant to do.
It was the feeling I was being told "You need to do something with Xalan to get this to work,
but you are going to have to figure that out yourself". It stopped me from evaluating Mustang
with XML. Can there be information in the developers' guide about this, and a link to that
information from these Usage notes?
