Re: BCEL 5.1 Backward Compatibility? Edwin Lee Tue Sep 12 19:57:18 2006


Thanks for the advice, i shall strip out the unnecessary packages from
xalan.jar and test it out. On reporting the bug, i did a search on JIRA, and
it has already been reported previously (
http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/XALANJ-2196). :)

Thanks Again,

Not sure about the regexp package, but probably remove it.

I think so.  You'll have to test yourself

Do you need XSLTC?  Do you actually use it?  The main thing is to use
an updated BCEL jar.  I'm not sure how XSLTC will respond to that,
since it was compiled against the older one.  You might want to
contact the Xalan list to verify all this.  When I used the 2jars
release, I never needed XSLTC functionality.  I just needed Xalan and
also needed a newer version of BCEL in my classpath, and having the
BCEL that comes with XSLTC in the endorsed directory really messed things

Only experimentation will tell you for sure.  In any case, I
encourage you to report the 2jars release problem to the Xalan team
so that the next release is done properly.
