Subject Re: JAXP missing on JDK1.3 ant build
Date Fri, 25 May 2007 06:21:53 GMT
I guess I never noticed that because I just install JAXP in Ant's lib
folder. The dependency is documented in lib/README.txt so those very few
who are going to compile Commons themselves on 1.3 will really not mind
so much, I think. But bundling JAXP would mean increasing the
distribution size a lot. And since we're likely moving away from 1.3 in
the near future, I don't think it's worth the trouble. But that's just
my opinion.
