Description

Name: ddT132432			Date: 12/18/2001


java version "1.4.0-beta3"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-beta3-b84)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-beta3-b84, mixed mode)


hello,

I couldn't find an appropriate subcategory so I posted it under runtime.

I have been told and I verified it that JDK1.4 b3 contains a BETA version of
Xalan.... .
As I'm into Xalan (XPath), I've been subscribed to the developers mailing list
as well. There a problem with XPath has been confirmed : SPEED.
XPath included in Xalan 2.2x is MUCH slower than the older STABLE version.
I'm talking about 60% LOST of speed. Others have confirmed outrageous memory
consumption.
Why is Xalan included in the runtime as a default ? Not to mention a beta
version.

Please, look into this issue as it may be a cause for much problems related to
XML transformations, XPath, etc. ...

You can get around this by placing xalan.jar in the endorsed lib directory of
the JDK1.4. Alternatively, you can put xalan.jar in the bootclasspath of the
JVM, that is if your JVM supports this option.
