Tomcat is working fine with JDK...at last.
I want to get into the XML side of things. Been adviced to use these tools to create a prototype if a web based shopping cart application that uttilizes Java servlets, XML and XSLT, HTML and JavaScript:
XML Processor, Apache Xalan 1.0.1
XSLT Parser, Apache Xerces 1.1.3
Xerces and Xalan are free. Xalan includes Xerces, so I visited http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j/ or simply to http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j/downloads.html
Now, it says "there are 2 binary distributions available..", which one is best for me as I really don't know what they are talking about
:roll:

First of all, be clear on the technologies you're trying to use.

Xalan is a XSLT processor.
Xerces is an XML Parser

Tomcat *includes* Xerces parser, which you would know if you read the docs. As for 'which xalan do i download'... this is the same question you had about 'which tomcat do i download'. You don't want the source, so ignore anything with 'source' or 'src' in the filename. If you're on windows, then you don't want a tar, g-ziped archive (ends with extension .tar.gz). You want Zip.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
