Additional Notes on JAXB

Post installation instructions for the java web services pack 1.3

For standalone Java(TM) applications to work with the Java(TM) Web Services Developer Pack, the JAXP classes built into JDK 1.4.x must be overridden. Overriding these classes is not necessary in order to run the bundled tomcat or the samples, since the provided scripts set "java.endorsed.dirs".

For JDK 1.4.x users, set the java.endorsed.dirs system property to:


  C:\jws-pack-13\jaxp\lib\endorsed

Alternatively, create the directory:


 \jre\lib\endorsed

and then copy the files in the following directory to the newly created directory:


 C:\jws-pack-13\jaxp\lib\endorsed
