Subject Re: [xerces2] info about some packaging changes
Date Fri, 30 Nov 2001 12:53:16 GMT
Shane, Edwin,

#1: I think xml-apis.jar should contain the same thing whether it is built by Xalan project
or
Xerces Project.

#2: My vote is to include latest DOM and SAX Standards (Not necessarily J2EE-1.3 compatible).
We
cannot and should not stop moving forward just because SUN picked up a snapshot to bundle
with
J2EE.

Thanks,
dims
