It looks like you must have the system property
javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory set to point to
org.apache.xerces.jaxp.DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl (e.g., via JAVA_OPTS).
This forces all XML scanning to go through that class, including any
done by Tomcat itself.  Consequently, the above class must be made
visible to the Tomcat internal classes, so putting the jar into
common/lib is required.

I'm not sure if there's any means of specifying a webapp-local XML
parser rather than a global one; others may have more experience here.
