On Friday October 26, 2001 I downloaded the current source
snapshot (jdom-complete.zip) from
After unzipping jdom-complete.zip, look at the JAR files
You will find these files:
jdom\lib\ant.jar (size: 295,934)
jdom\lib\collections.jar (size: 259,265)
jdom\lib\crimson.jar (size: 187,162)
jdom\lib\jaxp.jar (size: 28,404)
jdom\lib\xalan.jar (size: 801,714)
jdom\lib\xerces.jar (size: 1,498,679)
The xerces.jar file is version 1.2.0 of Apache's Xerces-J.
This is an out of date version of Xerces-J. The current release
of Xerces-J is version 1.4.3
The jdom\lib\ant.jar file appears to be an older copy of the Ant tool.
The current release of Ant is version 1.4.1
For Ant 1.4.1, the ant.jar file size is 417,110
Is the JDOM team going to update the ant.jar and xerces.jar files?
