Subject Re: Serialized compatibility
Date Fri, 02 Feb 2001 04:55:58 GMT
I am trying to use the xerces dom api.
However, I don't know where org.w3c.dom.* are located.

I've downloaded xerces.jar and sax2.jar

neither of them contains the damn org.w3c.dom.Document.class file.

need help..

cheers.
Bill
