Is it possible to use Crimson even when I have xerces.jar in my classpath?
What class name should I pass to SAXBuilder's constructor?

By the way, there is a package called parser.jar, that comes with the
Jakarta-Ant distribution. It contains the com.sun.xml.* packages.  Is that
an XML parser? Can it be used to build JDOM documents?

 - Noam.
