I already do this when starting up the application. At least in the web
version of the tool.

Unfortunately your hint did not result in a solution. I tried as you said.
With no luck. I then added a transformer errorlistener to log any errors
which might have been undetected otherwise. But the only failure I get is
about a table not being 100% or something.

The situation is really weird: 

- Runnin on Linux using a SUN JDK running within Eclipse... 
- ...as well as deployed to a Tomcat 6 as a war file works.

- Running on Windows deployed as a WAR file to Tomcat 6 running in a JRE
does *not* work.

- Running on Linux using IBM JRE deployed to Tomcat 5 as a WAR file does
*not* work.

- Running on Windows within Eclipse with a JDK and within Tomcat 6
seems to work. At least as far as I can remember (have no access to that
system right now).

And I always tried Firefox as well as IE. Just to make sure this is not a
cache or mime issue.

I start to believe that this is a JRE vs JDK issue? I remember from my
JasperReports days, that there was an issue on JRE systems and that I had
to add a "compiler" JAR on those systems. Could this be the same here?
