    Apache Tomcat/4.1.27
  2. I have found solution myself, for this we have to check jar files under installed directory of Tomcat eg. C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1\common\endorsed

    1) Opta2000.jar
    2) xerces.jar
    3) xercesImpl.jar
    4) xmlParserAPIs.jar

    These 4 files require to solve this issue.

    Thanks,
    Kishor
