I downloaded xalan.jar, xercesImpl.jar and xml-apis.jar file and have added them to the classpath along with xalansamples.jar.

When i tried to run SimpleTransform, I get the following error message:

at java.util.Hashtable.get(Compiled Code)
at java.util.Properties.getProperty(
at java.lang.System.getProperty(
at javax.xml.transform.SecuritySupport.getSystemProperty(Unknown Source)

at javax.xml.transform.FactoryFinder.find(Unknown Source)
at javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory.newInstance(Unknown Source)
at SimpleTransform.main(

Wht is the reason for this message? Anybody any ideas??

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4<br /> <br />Thanks in advance!<br />Jayashree.

Could you post "" for us to see? Maybe that'll give some hints.
