Hi, I downloaded the following: jakarta-tomcat-5.0.18 j2sdk1.4.2_03 Tomcat is working fine with SDK. Then I decided to use the following: XML Parser: Xerces XSLT Processor: Xalan Been told only to download Xalan because it also includes Xerces. So I downloaded this: xalan-j_2_5_2-bin Straight forward questions: 1) Where do I unzip the Xalan to? Where do I put its files...in the SDK directory? 2) How do I set the environment variables in this case? I downloaded a ZIP file from the Internet cotaining the source code of a shopping cart. On a seperate PDF file it says the following setup steps: A - copy framework.war to %TOMCAT_HOME%\webapps B - modify %TOMCAT_HOME%\bin\tomcat.bat so CLASSPATH contains xerces.jar BEFORE %TOMCAT_HOME%\lib\xml.jar A - Does this mean unzip the shopping cart file into the Tomcat specified folder? B - Where do you do this? This is what I did to make Tomcat and SDK work together... name: JAVA_HOME path: C:\j2sdk1.4.2_03 (must be the directory you installed the sdk) then edit PATH and add this to the value %JAVA_HOME%\bin
Thank you and look forward to hearing from you. Rami

In fact, Xalan does not include Xerces. You need to download Xerces separately. Regarding what to unzip and where, the golden rule is only .jar files matter in the classpath. In other words, unzip the xalan.zip (and xerces.zip) anywhere and only copy the .jar files (xalan.jar, xercesImpl.jar) into the "lib" directory according to whatever guide you're following.
