Hi Basu,

I'm new to tomcat, and over the last weekend I've been poking and prodding
at Tomcat (with many problems, although none there wasn't a manual for).

As far as I can reason, xalan.jar is placed in the "endorsed" folder and not
the "lib" folder because it is "endorsed" by Tomcat... But they (we) didn't
write it. I figure there may be a more recent copy of the library elsewhere,
and if this is the case, you could put all of your "lib" directories before
your "endorsed" directories in your path, so the system will use the
first-hand libraries first.

Please correct me if any of this is wrong, playing with tomcat right now
feels like I'm fumbling with a bra clasp.

Hey all,

I found from the tomcat users list that xalan.jar has to be placed in the
"..\common\endorsed" folder.

but i could'nt find reason behind that...

could someone help in understanding this please..

This might not be the right place to ask this question but might be releated
with the above reason...
Why do we need to create "endorsed" directory?
