[jdom-interest] Different compiled jdom.jars makes some trouble

Mario Becker-Reinhold



Hello everybody.

I have the following problem with two different jdom.jar files:
I have downloadet the jakarta slide webdavclient api.
I want to use the webdav protocoll to store files from a webbased lifecycle
management system to a storage system.
In the WEB-INF\lib folder there is already a jdom.jar existing which comes
with the lifecycle management system (compiled with J2SE 1.4) and I found
out, that the jdom.jar which comes with webdavclient api was compiled with
J2SE 5.0. And there is the problem. The lifecycle management system does not
support a java version greater than 1.4.2.
Anyway, I replaced the file to look what happens. As expected there occur a
lot of errors with the newer one...
So my question is, can anybody give me a hint, how I can use both jar files?
My approach is that it might be possible that I can download the source
files, rename the packages and compile the jar file new? Okay, I know its a
little bit confusing, but I dont know a better solution. Is this way even
possible? I mean I tested the jdom.jar of the webdav api, the lifecycle
management system run into some errors but it was possible to test all the
required functions which I need of the webdav api. So I can transfer files
from the system via webdav and a ssl connection into the storage. It works
well, so I think it doesnt matter that the webdav jdom.jar runs under java
version 1.4.2 for the webdav actions.
A other approach which is a question: Is it possible to configure tomcat or
the webdav api in that way, so that the webdav jdom.jar will only used for
webdav action and the normal jdom.jar at all other actions?
I hope you understand my bad english and can give me a hint/approach
Or did I overlook a compiled 1.4 version which works also with webdav client
