javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactoryConfigurationError: Provider org.apache.xalan.processor.TransformerFactoryImpl not found
This is the problem with jdk 1.5 and tomcat 5.0 and I've found the problem
in tomcat java is called with the following argument:
In this directory you find two jar files: xercesImpl.jar and xml-apis.jar needed by tomcat and that must be loaded before all xmsl stuff present in the jdk (1.4 naming problem). And in the file xml-apis.jar the TransformerFactoryImpl is set to "org.apache.xalan.processor.TransformerFactoryImpl".
The solution: remove the file xml-apis.jar from the directory.
For other application, just check this file or dom3-xml-apis.jar in your class path
