I get the following error.  I know it is likely a missing jar file, but I have all of the listed prerequisites.  Here are the details:

Here are the class libraries that I have included in my project:
JAXP_150.jar
commons-beanutils-1.9.1.jar
commons-collections-2.1.1.jar
commons-logging-1.1.1.jar
commons-javaflow-1209105.jar
commons-digester3-3.2.jar
commons-codec-1.5.jar
itext-2.1.3.jar
poi-3.2-FINAL.jar
jfreechart-1.0.7.jar
jxl-2.6.12.jar
jasperreports-5.5.1.jar
jasperreports-applet-5.5.1.jar
jasperreports-font-5.5.1.jar
jasperreports-javaflow-5.5.1.jar
servlet-api-2.4.jar

These other jar files that should be unrelated are there as well
toplink-essentials-agent.jar
RelativeLayout.jar
xercesImpl-2.9.1.jar
MySQL-connector-java-5.1.6-bin.jar
ostermillerutils_1_07_00.jar


This is jasperreports 5.5.1 obviously.  If anyone has it working for a stand-alone java program and can compare my situation with their working one, I would appreciate it.

Solved it.  When you download apache commons digester library make sure that you do not get the (most recent) digester3 version, get the digester-2.1 version.  They are not the same.

I hate giving myself the points, but I did solve it, and I think this should be posted since other developers seem to have similar problems with jasperreports.
