Error in applying XSL on XML in Websphere environment

We use Xalan and Xerces for XML transformation. When we run application in WebSphere environment we get following error. Application runs fine as a standalone app. It is only the problem in the Websphere environment. Has any one come across this problem?

The web app classloader was loading classes from the system classloader (includes all the .jars specified in server.xml's classpath) instead of from WEB-INF/lib.

i hope it will do.
