Re: xalan node-set not working
Okay, I fixed it. It happens to be an incompatibility problem with JDK 1.4 and xalan. I had to go to the home library of my JDK installation (/usr/local/bin/2re1.4.1/lib), and create a directory called "endorsed". I then copied all the jar files from the newest download of xalan into this directory. Everything seemed to work. Below is the complete posting from Sun's site. Paul The Sun JDK 1.4 is packaged with an old version (2.2D11) of Xalan-Java. The JDK 1.4 will attempt to use this version instead of any on the classpath. Unfortunately, this causes problems when attempting to use a newer version of Xalan-Java with the Sun JDK 1.4. You can always determine which version of Xalan-Java you are running by using the EnvironmentCheck class or by using the xalan:checkEnvironment extension function. It is highly recommended that you use this method to verify the version of Xalan-Java you are running, especially before opening a bug report. There are several ways to use a later version of Xalan-Java and override the one packaged with the JDK: * For the SUN JDK 1.4, use the Endorsed Standards Override Mechanism. Place the xalan.jar, xercesImpl.jar, and xml-apis.jar in the <java-home>\lib\endorsed directory, where <java-home> is where the runtime software is installed. * Use the -Xbootclasspath java commandline option to prepend the new xalan.jar, xercesImpl.jar, and xml-apis.jar to the boot class path. When running Xalan-Java: java -Xbootclasspath/p:<path> org.apache.xalan.xslt.Process where <path> is a <path.separator> separated list of the paths to the files xalan.jar, xercesImpl.jar, and xml-apis.jar (e.g. bin/xalan.jar:bin/xercesImpl.jar:bin/xml-apis.jar) containing the new-version of Xalan-Java. <path.separator> depends on the OS and version of the JDK. For Windows, it is likely a semicolon (;). For Unix, it is likely a colon (:). To determine which <path.separator> to use, you can execute "java -X"; it will mention the appropriate separator in the help output. The following methods do not work: * Using the CLASSPATH environment variable or using -classpath to place the new classes in the classpath. * Using the -jar option to explicitly execute the classes inside the new jar files. -- ************************ *Paul Tremblay * *phthenry@xxxxxxxxxxxxx* ************************ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
