  +XML parsers in Tomcat 4.0
  +=========================
  +
  +  In the tomcat-4.0 build procedure, an XML parser is required for three
  +  different components:
  +  
  +     1. ant
  +        See ant specific requirements for an XML parser
  +     2. catalina
  +        At least JAXP1.0 compliant XML parser
  +     3. jasper
  +        At least JAXP1.1 compliant XML parser
  +  
  +  All of these requirements can be handled globally by setting
  +  environment variable JAXP_HOME (as described above).
  +  
  +  The default jar files used for XML parsing are then:
  +     JAXP_HOME/jaxp.jar and JAXP_HOME/crimson.jar
  +  
  +  * To change the 'XML parser' jar file used:
  +  
  +    JAXP_PARSER_JAR [default: crimson.jar]
  +    (e.g. xerces.jar)
  +  
  +  * To set the XML parser of each component individually:
  +  
  +    ANT_XML_CLASSPATH [default: JAXP_HOME/JAXP_PARSER_JAR;JAXP_HOME/jaxp.jar]
  +  
  +    CATALINA_JAXP_HOME [default: JAXP_HOME]
  +    CATALINA_JAXP_PARSER_JAR [default: JAXP_PARSER_JAR]
  +  
  +    JASPER_JAXP_HOME [default: JAXP_HOME]
  +    JASPER_JAXP_PARSER_JAR [default: JAXP_PARSER_JAR]
