Re: XSLT functions in XPath
Xerces does not provide an XPath implementation (it implements only support for the limited expressions allowed by XML Schema constraints). Xalan provides an XPath 1.0 implementation and from the com.sun.org.apache... package name it seems there is the Sun (derived from Xalan) implementation that is included with the JVM.
You are right, it is a Xalan derivative rather than a Xerces derivative providing the XPath implementation. The Java 5 runtime contains both.
