[jdom-interest] classpath problem

I quote from the FAQ:
I tried to use JDOM and get an error like this:
You need to ensure that the xerces.jar file supplied with the
JDOM download is in your classpath before any other XML classes,
such as those that come with JAXP or Crimson. These other XML
libraries, as well as older versions of Apache Xerces, support DOM
Level 1 and SAX 1.0, not the required DOM Level 2 and SAX 2.0.
The result is an exception being thrown. Check your classpath, and
try again. If the classpath looks OK, the problematic JAR might also
be hiding in the system's standard extension directory
I'm having this problem, and I tried to solve it by putting the
xerces.jar file as the first entry of my classpath, but no joy. I'm
using Forte4j community edition as IDE, and this is the classpath I
specify for the compiler:
As you can see the xerces.jar file is the first entry.
Can anyone help me on this? I'm a novice programmer so even
obvious help will be helpfull.
