Subject RE: Xerces parser.
Date Mon, 12 Feb 2001 12:38:40 GMT

The problem I think is due to tomcat using its XML parser code to process

It has an old DOM v1 parser - which means if you use new v2-only methods,
you get this kind of error.

The work around we use is to remove the jaxp/parser jar files from the
tomcat lib and drop in the xerces jar file.

Then tomcat uses these and they have the new v2 facilities.
