Subject forrest webapp install fails for 0.4 release
Date Fri, 14 Feb 2003 17:28:08 GMT

I just downloaded forrest 0.4 and tried to install the webapp on a clean 
machine.  After running 'forrest webapp' and configuring it in Tomcat 
3.3.1a, I tried to access the webapp and got a ClassNotFoundException 
for a xerces class.

It turns out that neither the xml-apis.jar nor the xercesImpl.jar were 
copied over to the webapp/WEB-INF/lib directory.  Looking at the forrest 
build file, it seems that these files are not copied if one is using 
jdk1.4+.  I am using jdk1.4.1_01 on linux.  By manually copying those 
two jars across from forrest, the webapp then worked flawlessly.

Is there another way I should have fixed this?  Can the webapp target be 
patched to copy these jar files as well, even under jdk1.4+?  If 
jdk1.4.1 is supposed to contain a copy of these jars already, do you 
have any ideas as to why weren't they found on my classpath?
