Subject Re: Running XML-parsing servlets on Tomcat, using JAXP ?
Date Thu, 12 Sep 2002 20:08:45 GMT
You don't need the jax-pack for your problem. Under 
{CATALINA_HOME}/common/endorsed, just copy the xerces.jar and the 
jaxp-ri.jar file. Tomcat will uses this folder for selecting which 
parser to use (so crimson will not be used).
