Subject Re: [GUMP] Build Failure - Taglibs

Hi Sam

I've ported over the xtags library to the new build process so that now the
JARs in xtags/lib/* have been deleted. This may cause a GUMP failure soon.

After more research I've realised that Xalan 2 ships with a JAR called
xalanj1compat.jar (notice the j after xalan - I missed that the first time).

So now xtags builds off a regular Xalan 2 distribution, its just that both
xalan.jar and xalanj1compat.jar are required to perserve the backwards
compatible tag which supports old xalan 1 (JAXP 1.0) deployments.

Though after the first real release of xtags I'd like to remove the
backwards compatible tag as, if nothing else, it makes the build process
even more complicated than it is already. So this xalanj1compat.jar issue
will hopefully go away in a month or so.

James
