Subject Re: proposed patch for ant to use xerces/jaxp
Date Mon, 16 Oct 2000 14:19:08 GMT
The reason I would still think you may want to consider using xerces.jar,
that it comes with a newer (latest?) version of the org.w3c classes. The Sun
reference implementation uses an older version of the org.w3c classes,
making the binary ant build harder to use to build XML related projects
(including xerces :)
