See for the background.
Java 5 uses the core classloader to load the TransformerFactory
implementation specified in the javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory
property. This is why the class needs to be in the endorsed directory
instead of the normal classpath location if you want to use another
transformer than the one included by default in Java 5. For Jackrabbit
the problem was that our XSL transformation was using features not
included in the default compiling transformer implementation in Java

Not having looked at the issue here I'm not sure if the same thing
applies. Just reacting to Edgar's comment. :-)
