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
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. ????
