Subject Re: problems with castor transformer example
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2003 10:29:36 GMT

it isn't. For historic reasons, the CastorTransformer internally uses the 
SAXAdaptor class to map between SAX1 and SAX2 events. As such, it is a 
requirement to specify the XML parser you are using.

I do not know what web container you are using, but with e.g. Tomcat it would 
be sufficient to specify the environment varaiable JAVA_OPTS as follows: 


Please be aware that in my case, I am using Xerces. If you are using another 
parser, please amend the above configuration accordingly.

If you are not using Tomcat (Catalina), please try to include the above 
property with the JVM that's responsible for starting the conatiner.

I hope this hepls
