XML translation

I am getting a compiling error while running a XML file.


unable to resolve import org.w3c.dom.*;
unable to resolve import javax.xml.parsers.*;

I understand that I am missing the packages required. I tried to download them but not sure if that is the correct one. Can someone help me with this?

You need the right version of java (>= 1.4)

I apologize. I just realised that I am using 1.3.1 version which has come as a default when I was installing WSAD 5.0. Can you please tell me where I can find the external .jar files  for this issue?

You'd be much better off upgrading your Java installation on WSAD as you're missing out on a *lot* with 1.3

But, in the event you can't /don't want to upgrade WSAD, you can download these at:

I take that back - you won't the the javax.* packages, but you can download xerces from apache, which has similar functionality, and is what we used before this was put into 1.4.
