using xerces parser instead of crimson

I am very close to getting this thing working but it seems that it is using the crimson parser which comes with java instead of the xerces parser which I installed. How do I get it to use the xerces.jar file instead?? I saw something which talked about adding an entry to the tomcat/bin/startup.sh file but it dont seem to be working...

thanks for any help

Sorry......trying to get tomcat and axis working. I need tomcat to use xerces parser instead of using the crimson parser which comes with tomcat. I read somewhere that you can modify the order in which tomcat uses the classpath by modifying the startup.sh file but I have done that and it still is using the crimson parser. Apparently tomcat puts all of the user classpaths at the end when it starts so it sees its own stuff first.

I'm confused as to why you posted this in the Ant forum. I'll move this along to the Tomcat forum.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
