Subject [POLL] Tomcat 3.x RPMS : Which XML Parser to be put in ? : WAS : XML parser: old version

others xerces-j (?).

I launch that poll to see if which XML parser RPMS users want to
see included by default.

I could add xerces-j 1.4.0 or crimson 1.1 (from xml-crimson CVS or from

FYI, I removed on all my sites (which use this RPM), jaxp.jar/parser.jar
