Xerces issue upgrading to RC1

I patched a lab environment to RC1 last week and couldn’t get to complete
the config until today, when I encountered an issue loading our sites.

Upon load I received the following:

org.apache.xerces.parsers.XIncludeAwareParserConfiguration cannot be cast
to org.apache.xerces.xni.parser.XMLParserConfiguration

I was able to workaround the issue as it looks like Lucee was trying to
load the wrong version of Xerces?

In my install folder (based on 4.x) I had the following Xerces jar

  • C:\lucee\lib\apache-xml-xerces.jar
  • C:\lucee\tomcat\lucee-server-bundles\org.lucee.xml.xerces-2.11.0.jar

I stopped the server, renamed apache-xml-xerces.jar to
apache-xml-xerces.bak restarted and now everything works (as far as I can
tell!)

However, I just felt like checking in with the issue/workaround to ensure
everything was still good and that there’s no underlying problem with the
upgrade. I know there were issues with Xerces in the early stages that
Micha was working on.

Hi,

If you are upgrading from Lucee 4.5 to Lucee 5 you must remove ALL the JAR
files as per the note on the migration doc:

http://docs.lucee.org/guides/lucee-5/upgrading-lucee-45.html

“…and remove all other jars (NOTE you must remove the JARs, DO NOT
simply rename them)…”

So there should be NO JAR’s in your “C:\lucee\lib” directory except
lucee.jar.

Kind regards,

Andrew

Thank you Andrew, I had not done that.

I’ve submitted a PR to the page, I had checked the page but read it too
quickly (my bad) and seen it as 3 steps - stop, copy, start.–
