Hello everyone,

I identified some problems with my application with JAXP 1.3 which are solved with JAXP 1.4. However, the target platform is Java 5. So: How can I use JAXP 1.4 with Java 5?

Thank you.

Use the endorsed mechanism [1], download jaxp jars from and put them under:


Or use the bootclasspath option, sth like this:
-Xbootclasspath/p:${jaxp jar dir}/jaxp-api.jar:${jaxp jar dir}/jaxp-ri.jar

Thank you, that solved the problem. Now I need to figure out how to configure Maven to do that.
