Configuring the XML Libraries

A guide to stxx


Stxx requires a later version of a JAXP 1.2-compatible XML library and if Xalan/Xerces are used, a later version of both libraries are strongly recommended. The use of the XML libraries varies depending on what version of Java is being used.

Java 1.4+

Since Sun's Java 1.4 comes with an older version of Xalan, the XML libraries in the directory libs/core/endorsed need to be copied to $JAVA_HOME/lib/endorsed. For more information, see the Xalan FAQ.

Java 1.3.1 or earlier

Since older versions of Java don't contain any XML libraries, simply copying the jars in libs/core/endorsed to /WEB-INF/lib of your web application will suffice.
