SLD Validator uses apache xerces classes

Description

In an email from a user: http://www.nabble.com/error-while-creating-new-style-.-t1144654.html - http://www.nabble.com/error-while-creating-new-style-.-t1144654.html we have a report of classdef not found. Most jvms include xerces, but we can not rely on it, it seems. The cleaner choice is to use all Java api's for parsing, which I believe is how this should have been coded, since there is no justificatio nfor not using the standard apis in the code. If we have to use the xerces SAXParser then we should explain why in the code, and include the jar in our distribution.

<p>Ok, from the user:

I have deployed geoserver1.3 war on tomcat5.5 and i am having

jdk1.5_06 . I could resolve the error after adding the xercesImpl and

xml-api jars . My Sld was very bacis and i have checked for compliance

against the schema .</p>

<p>But after that i never again got the errror again.

&#8212;</p>

<p>So I guess we should consider including them in the WEB-INF/lib section? Ideally just for the war, since they're already in the binary releases.</p>

<p>Upped the priority, since there have been several reports on this, we rely on the presence of xerces in both the SLDValidator and in wfs-insert it appears. This isn't a problem in the binary releases, but is for the .war. So we just need to build the war with the xerces stuff. Hopefully so we're not replicating the jars in two locations (they may be necessary for the jetty start-up, or I'd say we'd just move them all to the WEB-INF/lib)</p>

<p>I think the jars got added there a while back. The two jars are in the war in WEB-INF/lib, and in the binary distro.</p>

<p>Could you attach the war that has these two jars in it? </p>

<p>I just did an update on svn and did 'ant release-war', and I definitely didn't see any xercesImpl.jar. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Looking at the commit list I don't see any xerces updates since 1.3.0...</p>
