Hi,
I have written a java program to parse an xml file(using JAXP)
and I am getting this error:
javax.xml.parsers.FactoryConfigurationError: org.apache.crimson.jaxp.DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl
at javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance(DocumentBuilderFactory.java:93)
I don't have a clue why I am getting this, and the code works on a different machine. I included crimson.jar, jaxp.jar, and xalan.jar in my classpath is there any thing else that has to be done?
If any body knows why I am getting the error, and how to fix it please let me know.
Thank you,
Rosalinde Casalini

If the code works on a different system, that points to a likely cause. Namely, your system has an earlier version of JAXP somewhere where the JVM finds it before looking on the classpath. A likely suspect is the directory:
JAVA_HOME\jre\lib\ext
Read the tooldocs file on how classes are located for why this happens.

Hi,
Thanks for responding. It turned out I had two problems I had different DOM's in my classpath, and I needed the earlier version of JAXP(1.0) JAXP 1.1 has a bug in parsing inputSource. I downloaded JAXP1.0 put JAXP.jar and Parser.jar in my classpath and all was fine.
Thanks again,
Rosalinde

I have not encountered any bug in JAXP 1.1 - exactly what happened?
