I need to convert XML to HTML using XSL. We are using WebSphere 3.5 (JDK 1.2.2). Reading WebSphere documentation I understand that WebSphere uses Xalan XML processor, but for conversion examples WebSphere refers to Xalan documentation.
To get Xalan documentation I downloaded Xalan, installed and tested one sample Java application, which converts XML to HTML and it works fine.
So far so good ....
When I try to compile the same application using WebSphere JDK install files I am getting class not found error for the following:
import javax.xml.transform.Transformer;
import javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException;
import javax.xml.transform.TransformerException;
import javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory;
import javax.xml.transform.stream.StreamResult;
import javax.xml.transform.stream.StreamSource;
Looks like some kind of classpath is missing, but I could not figure out which path is missing. I am able to import javax.servlet.* ok.
Do I need to put any jar files from Xalan in WesSphere classpath?
Any help is appreciated.

Could it be that you downloaded a newer version than WebSphere is using? Maybe the API has changed since so might want to check which version of Xalan your WebSphere is using and try to locate the javadocs for that particular version of Xalan.
