    Switching Crimson to Xerces Breaks Tomcat/SSL Config

    Buzz Andersen Newbie

      Hi,
      This is sort of, shall we say, an "interdisciplinary" problem, so I'm not sure where to post it, but I'll try this forum. To put it simply, I really need to use Xerces instead of the default Crimson that comes with JBoss. I have followed the instructions for switching XML parsers (editing run.bat, switching out the Jars).

      The switch works great until I add the following code to jboss.jcml to make Tomcat use SSL:


      80







      After adding the above code, the following error starts popping up when JBoss tries to start up embedded tomcat:

      [INFO,EmbeddedCatalinaServiceSX] Starting
      [INFO,EmbeddedCatalinaServiceSX] Starting EmbeddedCatalinaSX....
      [INFO,EmbeddedCatalinaServiceSX] Building Http engine and connector
      [INFO,Default] PARSE error at line 1 column 1
      org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The markup in the document preceding the root element must be well-formed.

      I suspect that Xerces' problem is arising from the XML actually embedded within the "config" element, although I don't understand enough about how the JBoss/Tomcat bundle works to know precisely why Xerces objects and Crimson doesn't. Does anyone have any ideas about either:

      1. How I could solve this parsing problem?

      - or -

      2. How I could achieve a similar SSL configuration using different XML?

      Any help would be GREATLY, GREATLY appreciated! Thanks so much!
