Subject Re: Tomcat 4.0.1 Final and Xerces Parser
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2001 15:21:41 GMT
Frank and others,

I have been experiencing similar problems. Not sure how to fix it 
because my errors were with an org.xml.sax.Attributes method. I 
found that it is defined in at least 4 jar files on my class path. I remember 
reading in the documentation that the parser supplied by Catalina is not 
shared by applications. I also found that the method not found error 
manifests itself differently depending on the JDK that I am using. If I 
use IBM's 1.3 JDK quite a few of my pages work. With Sun's 1.3.1 
JDK it fails on all pages, and Sun's 1.2.2 is somewhere in between. 

Can anyone point me to something that documents how we should 
set this up? I realize that duplicating classes in jar files is not a good 
practice but it must be fairly common, quite a few projects include the 
org.xml and W3C classes in their distributions.

I don't know what the right answer is, but I got my app to
pick up the xerces parser by putting it in the jre lib\ext
directory (e.g. F:\jdk1.3.1\jre\lib\ext).

You might also try the tomcat common\lib.
