Description
We should update the JNLPDownloadServlet documentation.  I believe jaxp.jar is now named xerces.jar instead.

From: "Chesnut, Randall" <###@###.###>
To: ###@###.###
Subject: Feedback on "Packaging JNLP Applications in a Web Archive" 1.0.1

Feedback on

<http://java.sun.com/products/javawebstart/docs/downloadservletguide.html> .
(I don't know whether a bug report is the preferred method for this type of
feedback or not, but I'll do one too just to be on the safe side.  I guess
that might also be helpful to those searching the bug database.)

The above document contains WAR file content examples that show jaxp.jar as
the XML parser included in the WAR file, and the instructions say that these
XML parser .jar files "can be downloaded from java.sun.com/xml".

But at least as of the Winter '01 Java XML Pack, jaxp.jar is no longer
available.  (I think the xerces.jar available in the XML Pack can be used as
a substitute.)  This situation is confusing to those of us who don't know
much about XML parsers.

When I first tried to use JNLPDownloadServlet and it didn't work, I wasted
several hours going down a dead end because I thought I might not have a
good set of equivalent XML parser .jar files.  (The real problem ultimately
turned out to be a JNLPDownloadServlet bug that was completely unrelated to
XML parsing.)

Thanks,

Randall Chesnut

###@###.### 2002-01-17

the name of the jar files for the XML parser changes frequently, now for the XML summer 02 pack, the jar files name are jaxp-api.jar and xercesImpl.jar

instead of using specific names for the XML parser jar files, I believe the document should just be more generic saying that the developer needs to put  jar files in the WEB-INF directory which implements an XML parser in order for the JNLPDownloadServlet to work.
