I have plugged Cocoon (http://xml.apache.org/cocoon) in Tomcat. I wonder if anybody has tried to integrate Cocoon with WebSphere. I am using WAS 3.5 on iSeries (AS/400).
Thanks.

Hi there,
I don't know what Cocoon is, although I heard it is related to XML. Anyway, WebSphere has xerces.jar and xalan.jar in its classpath. Both SAX and DOM is available.

Which version of xerces/xalan WAS is using? I remember IBM had XML4J instead of xerces/xalan.
Can I replace xerces/xalan shipped with WAS with the newest downloads from aparche?
Coccon is a very interesting (maybe useful) Web publishing framework. Click on the link you will find out what it is.

In your server classpath, put xalan/xerces before XML4j should do the trick.

If you don't want the new edition of xerces.jar and xalan.jar to affect the other applications running on the application server, put xerces and xalan you have in the .ear file of your application. You are not suppose to change anything in lib folder. If you put a new .jar in .ear. It will override the one in lib. The classloader searche .ear first.

By the way I saw xml4j.jar is also there, but I never used it. Do you know what it is for?

XML4J was the IBM Alphaworks (www.alphaworks.ibm.com) name for what became the Xerces Java XML parser after we turned that technology over to the Apache Consortium. We are still supporting versions of XML4J while we switch all of our products over to the Xerces API's and parser.

Interesting.
If IBM switches to xerces/xalan, then I should be able to code application using JAXP. Which version of xerces/xalan WAS (3.5 and 4.0) is using?
