    JBoss 3.2.3 ships with previous version of xercesImpl.jar

    Surjit Sen Newbie

      JBoss 3.2.3 ships with an older version of xercesImpl.jar, that does not support XML Schema Validation. I conducted some quick trials with JBoss using the latest version of xercesImpl.jar and it seems to work fine. However I am worried about using the new version of xercesImpl.jar in production. Any comments or suggestions would be highly appreciated

          We're planning to use a more recent version of xercesImpl.jar in production because we're switching to Jetty 5 for the Servlet 2.4 & JSP 2.0 features and this requires a newer version of Xerces to validate web.xml which now uses a schema (so I suspect anyone using Tomcat 5 will have the same issue).

          We've not had any problems with testing, and the server seems to start quicker!

            download the source, add the xercesImpl, run the build, run the unit tests. If they work then you can have some confidene. (there are some that will fail due to jvm bugs, see the comments for info)

              I see the new version of xerces came out on 30 Jan. I remember that there was a bug which I saw a report of last year November time, but I can't find it anymore - something to do with tomcat or JSTL taglibs - is this new xerces now bug-free as far as tomcat is concerned?

              Sorry my original question was going to be: what is Jetty?
