I am trying to run a HelloWorld application using Spring 1.1 rc2. I tried to load bean file like this
BeanFactory factory = new XmlBeanFactory(new ClassPathResource("helloworld.xml"));
it is giving the error
javax.xml.parsers.FactoryConfigurationError: Provider org.apache.xerces.jaxp.DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl not found
When I added Xerces to classpath it is working. It seems strange that Xerces is not distributed with Spring. Or am I making a mistake ?.
