getAssociatedStylesheets failed

I'm doing a tutorial on Dev Shed on the basics of Transformation. All of the examples in the tutorial worked except for the last one that uses a JSP page to transform a stylesheet. I'm using Tomcat 4.0.6 that comes with net beans.
The error that I'm getting is:
javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException: getAssociatedStylesheets failed
The JSP page is supposed to get the location of the XSL Transformation stylesheet from the XML file on a line like....
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="./addresses.xsl"?>
in the XML file.
I don't understand what is causing it, except that maybe the directory it is searching for the xsl file is not the right one? I don't know. I've tried absolute paths and everything.
Anyway here are the files, the class is contained in /mywebapp/WEB-INF/Classes and the JSP is contained in the same directory as the XML and XSL files.

The XML file....

The XSL file

The JSP File

And last but not least...The Class file from WEB-INF/classes

Thanks in advance,
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
