Got it! Now this is interesting...
I'm playing around with an applet that parses a XML file residing on the
server. That's where the javax.xml.parsers.documentbuilderfactory path
element comes from. The XML file and the applets JAR archive are
currently stored in the app's root folder $CATALINA_HOME/webapps/myapp.
I'm still trying to figure out why this strange request is sent to the
server:
the plugin on the client pc loads all classes from the JAR and starts
the applet. The applet requests a DOM parser from
javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory. This *should* through the
client JRE (plugin) and not affect the server at all. UNLESS I would
have packed the javax.xml.parsers package into my applet's JAR - which I
did not. ????


Regards,
Marcel
