cocoon xalan extensions
I have xalan running as part of cocoon on Tomcat and I'd like to setup scripting extensions but am having a difficult time setting up javascript extensions according to the instructions on http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j/extensions.html.

The following style sheet:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"

<xalan:component prefix="my-ext" functions="dummy">
 <xalan:script lang="javascript">
   function dummy(){
     return "hop to it";

<!-- omitted intermediate templates -->

<xsl:template match="sql:categories">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>
<xsl:variable name="today" select="Date:new()" xmlns:Date="xalan://java.util.Date"/>
<xsl:value-of select="$today"/>
<function><xsl:value-of select="my-ext:dummy()"/></function>

returns this result:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<content xmlns:xalan="http://xml.apache.org/xalan" xmlns:sql="http://apache.org/cocoon/SQL/2.0">

<function />

So the javascript extension doesn't work. I placed the bsf.jar and js.jar files in the tomcat/shared/lib folder and figured that would put it in the classpath. Is that wrong?
