I have 2 methods createFile() and addInfo() methods in my program. I call createFile() and addInfo() one after the other. I am getting exception only on one of my friend's PC. Does it have to do with the environment?

Code:
--------


      /**This method creates XML file with unique name       
       *
       */
      private void createFile() {
            try {
                  File xmlMDirectory = new File(MDIR);
                  if (!xmlMDirectory.exists()) {
                        xmlMDirectory.mkdirs();
                  }

                  File file = new File(_mFileName);
                  if (!file.exists()) {
                        PrintWriter fileOut;
                        fileOut = new PrintWriter(new FileWriter(_mFileName, false));
                        fileOut.write("<?xml version=\"1.0\"?>");
                        fileOut.write("<MOP/>");
                        fileOut.close();
                  } else {
                        System.out.println("The File already exists");
                  }
            } catch (Exception e) {
                  System.err.println(e);
            }
      }

      /**This method adds the user input to XML
       *       
       */
      private void addInfo() {

            File _mopFile = new File(_mFileName);
            System.out.println("I am fine at 1");
            SAXBuilder builder = new SAXBuilder();
            System.out.println("I am fine at 2");
            Document doc;
            System.out.println("I am fine at 3");

            try {
                  doc = builder.build(_mFile); //Loading the XML into memory
                  System.out.println("I am fine at 4");
----------------------------------------------

It throws xception at " doc = builder.build(_mFile); //Loading the XML into memory"

Exception:
----------------

Hi,
it seems llike problem occurs due yo usage of java1.4 which has included XML Parser (Apache xerces), but you are using JDom for xml parsing.
Two possibilities are available here:
1. Recompile your program before execution on your friends PC.
2. Add jdom jar files into  endorsed  directory of the JRE14 lib directory

The getXMLReader () method seems to be abstract.
