Subject Re: xml-apis.jar

XML-APIs is a kind of pack which is not very elegant but is sadly 
It contains
- sax (2.0.1 I think)
- dom (2 xx I think)
- jaxp (1.1 I think)
The reason it's necessary is jaxp: this package has such a weird 
license (and Sun never really understood itself on how to license it) 
that you'd better not see it and trust Apache that it is under Apache 
(there has been several debates on that and I think this is actually 

It would be brave that someone makes it official...
Or request JDK 1.4.


PS: sorry to be so negative but my experience thus far with JAXP 
license was the worst I ever had... I hope to have offended no-one.
