Subject Server startup fails with Sun JDK 1.5, xalan missing
Date Thu, 16 Nov 2006 10:45:54 GMT

I checked out the current trunk and build it with Sun JDK  1.5.0_06, the
build works fine.

But when I try to start geronimo-tomcat-j2ee-1.2-SNAPSHOT server, it fails
with following error message.
Module  6/23 org.apache.geronimo.configs/openejb/1.2-SNAPSHOT/car
    Exception in thread "Timer-0"
ationError: Provider org.apache.xalan.processor.TransformerFactoryImpl not
        at javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory.newInstance(Unknown

I looked for xalan files and found that the xalan implementation is missing
in JDK 1.5, I used SUN JDK 1.4.2 and the server started without any problem.

I think we need to package xalan implementation with server build via
repository, just like xerces and xmlparser. What do you guys say? or I am
missing something here.

Also notice, Sun JDK 1.4.2 is shipped with Xalan Java 2.4.1, and current
version of Xalan available is 2.7, I think we should make Xalan transformet
independent of JDK.
