      That does not work for me, no matter what version of Xalan I put in ANT_HOME/lib, I always get:

       
      Using loader null on class org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.optional.junit.XMLJUnitResultFormatter: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/w3c/dom/Node
      	at org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.optional.junit.FormatterElement.createFormatter(FormatterElement.java:241)
      	at org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.optional.junit.FormatterElement.createFormatter(FormatterElement.java:214)

      	at org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.optional.junit.JUnitTestRunner.main(JUnitTestRunner.java:766)

      	at org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.optional.junit.JUnitTestRunner.main(JUnitTestRunner.java:766)
      

      Then I read:

      http://ant.apache.org/faq.html#junit-no-runtime-xml

      This states that the only way to fix this is to fix one's build.xml file like so:
      "the easiest solution is to add

      <pathelement path="${ant.home}/lib/xml-apis.jar:${ant.home}/lib/xercesImpl.jar"/>
      

      to your task's <classpath>."
      I implemented this and the build succeeded. So I am submitting the attached patch to build.xml. This path element is ignored by Java versions >= 1.4 since one must use the override mechanism to use different XML libs than what is in the runtime.

      Thank you,
      Gary
