Subject RE: Jetspeed not deploying on Tomcat 4.1.24 LE
Date Fri, 28 Mar 2003 06:18:06 GMT
What i understand is that a number of packages, especially xml related are already 
standard in the JDK 1.4. The Tomcat full-edition has some overlap with these packages, and
that the LE version has been cleaned out. So no overlapping packages anymore.

This seems very nice to me, as it keep control over the large number of packages used today.

One possible reason is that Jetspeed uses XML extensively and may, 
improperly, use a specific XML parser.  In this case, I would guess it 
might specifically use the Xerces parser.  the LE version of  Tomcat 
doesn't come with Xerces.  It should be using the Interfaces and use 
whatever parser is available.  BTW, xerces, xalan, mail, and anything else 
with endorsed packages should *not* be in WEB-INF/lib.  It violates the Sun 
classloading spec and causes lots of hard to debug classloader 
errors.  Tomcat now attempts to avoid loading endorsed packages from the 
WebappClassLoader, but I recommend not putting that stuff there in the 
first place to, if nothing else, avoid confusion when things don't work and 
it looks like they should.  Endorsed packages should be loaded via the 
shared classloaders or the boot/system classloader.

I actually recommend using the full version of Tomcat no matter what for 
any situation.  I really don't have a clue why they ship an "LE" 
version.  A smaller download maybe?  In this day in age of broadband 
internet access, I don't see the reason?
