   JAXP 1.3 for Java 1.4?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Forgive the cross-post, but this seems like it might be generally interesting
for both lists.

Are there JARs or other software available that let you use JAXP 1.3 with Java
1.4? The XPath capabilities in javax.xml.xpath look very promising. But our
MusicXML software runs on both Windows and Mac OS X, so requiring Java 5.0 will
be impossible for quite a while yet. And even on Windows, we would prefer to
keep Java 1.4 as the version requirement if possible.

What I'm looking for is something like the Sun collections library for Java 1.1
that let you use Java collections on Mac OS 9. At Java One, there were hints
that this might be possible. But the JSR 206 page just points to the Java 5.0

If not, we can check the Java version before using javax.xml.xpath code. But it
would be nice to know if we at least have the option to use JAXP 1.3 on OS X in
the near future.

Thanks for any assistance and pointers!
