  I want to modify the source files corresponding to the package (Xerces
or Crimson) to include additional functionality. I am using Xerces jar
to execute my programs. But unfortunately when i am debugging my program,
control goes to the crimson package. So which files i need to change. I am
using J2SDK1.4.1.
