Subject Re: xerces version used by Tomcat 4.1.27
Date Thu, 09 Oct 2003 13:27:39 GMT
Yoav, in the xerces bundled with tomcat 5.0.12, there is nothing of use 
in the manifest. You have to run something like:

java -cp xercesImpl.jar org.apache.xerces.impl.Version

to get the version. Not exactly intuitive.

you don't need another copy.  It's automatically on your webapp's classpath, which you'd know
if you read any of the classloader docs.
