Someone else's comment that 1.2.1 is the wrong version led me to dig around some more, and I did find the 2.0 packages. It does include bin/i386_linux2.2_glibc2.1/4ssdriver but this file really makes no sense whatsoever. Do you have some useful documentation of the 4SS driver operation? And what is this comment all about: ### You've got to have all your stuff set up in a magic ### way for this to work. Was your intent to post dubious results so that you can get me to do all your work for you? > Both the Saxon and the Xalan driver have not changed > in any material way in about 5 months. > > > Companies which post benchmarks ought to be more responsible. > > Look, there was something we missed in a couple of (admittedly important) > drivers. We will set it right. I would be grateful for your involvement > and any help you can provide, both for Xalan and the benchmark in general. Your lack of documentation of method, constraints, restrictions, architecture, environment, etc. is *highly* unprofessional. A benchmark is a scientific exercise, requiring all the attention to controls of any such scientific inquiry. You can't go posting benchmarks with all corners cut and expect to retain credibility. -- Uche Ogbuji Principal Consultant uche.ogbuji@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx +1 303 583 9900 x 101 Fourthought, Inc. http://Fourthought.com 4735 East Walnut St, Ste.
