    ****************************************************************
    When a web module contains an implementation class of
    javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory, the following exception
    could be thrown when using the JSP Batch Compiler with option -
    classloader parentFirst:
    org.apache.xalan.processor.TransformerFactoryImpl cannot be
    cast
    to  javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory
    at javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory.newInstance(Unknown

    ctJspModC.java:703)
    ...
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JSP Batch Compiler has been modified to use the server óÔé¼Ô
    implementation of
    javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory instead of the one
    provided by the web
    module.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.45, 8.0.0.14, 8.5.5.13, and 9.0.0.5.  Please ref
