Description Shane Curcuru 2002-07-09 15:27:02 UTC
JDK 1.4 embeds a number of important XML jars inside it's rt.jar (or otherwise 
inside the JDK).  Which should be able to detect which classes are coming from 
a JDK-supplied jar (normally older versions of things like JAXP 
parsers/processors) and which are coming from use of the Endorsed Standards 
Override Mechanism at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/docs/guide/standards/

(Note: we should consider using reflection to keep JDK 1.1.x compatible for the 
time being; or perhaps encapsulate this in a specific separate class that can 
be used or not used depending on JDK version)
