Hi,
We've recently started using Websphere 5.1 for developing our web application. We had been previously using the xerces v2.1 parser and discovered that Websphere uses the xerces v2.01 parser. One of my questions is: is it possible to upgrade the parser that Websphere uses? I read Barry Searle's "Avoiding ClassCastExceptions due to Xerces Libraries within Web Modules on Websphere Application Server" and implemented his suggestions for using a different xerces version. There was a ClassCastException for the logging service so this issue is still not solved for me. I have many questions regarding the way Websphere works and how best to use it so it doesn't get in my way of creating our application. Would the Kushner book answer these and other questions for me?
Thanks, Carrie

Just a suggestion, update your last updated date on geocities resume.
If mentioning the version of Software and Specs., be careful to update them wrt the update time.

Vinod,
Thank you for your quick reply. Question about your link to PQ75253, it applies to Websphere v5.0.1, is it relevant for v5.1? Could you comment on PQ77263. Searle mentions it at the bottom of his article. Is it a similar fix? Is it applicable to Websphere v5.1?
Thanks in advance, Carrie

I don't see PQ77263 being applied in V5.0.2 or v5.1 from the release notes.

makes me believe that you would need this efix but you should consult ibm support before applying.

Thanks Vijay. point taken
