Saxon, Tomcat, NetBeans, and Java

For several days, i've been getting headache on Tomcat, Java, and Saxon, both in Windows and Linux platform. First, i couldn't transform a XML file into HTML file using saxon 6.x. Then, when i started NetBeans 4.1, XML Parser Exception occured (even though it can be skipped by pressing the OK button). Next, i couldn't access my MySQL database using JConnector along with JSP. In Linux platform, it's getting worse. Tomcat installation was done, but it couldn't be started and XML Parser Exception was raised again.

On Wednesday, i just found the solutions. First, for the Saxon problem. The solution is to upgrade it into Saxon 8.4. The second problem was instantly disappear when i upgraded to Saxon 8.4, so i fixed two problems with only 1 upgrades. Nice :)

In the previous day, i tried to put the MySQL-connector in the WEB-INF/lib directory, and it worked. I can access my database again. Good work. It's all working on Windows platform. Let's see if it works too on Linux platform (it should be).
