You need to install at least these Debian packages:


I'm not sure you still need to install jaxp, but you do need to
add all of the jars from those packages to your java classpath,
including the xml-apis and xercesimpl jars

On my Debian machine, I have the following in my .bashrc:

# directory containing all your jar files
export JARDIR=/usr/share/java

export CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$JARDIR/xml-commons-resolver-1.1.jar
export CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$JARDIR/xercesimpl.jar
export CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$JARDIR/xml-apis.jar

As far as the saxon65.jar and xalan25.jar files, those are
probably filenames of jars that contain sets of DocBook XSLT Java
extensions. They are not build dependencies -- they're built by
the docbook-xsl build process. But note that the current build
does not make a file called xalan25.jar. Instead it builds files
called xalan2.jar and xalan27.jar. We probably don't really need
to have the build making both of those and will likely change the
build setup soon so that only one is built. I guess it will
probably just be called xalan.jar.

Those files are built in your docbook-xsl working directory,
whatever local path on your system maps to the following SVN URL:


Anyway, if you are trying to get a working docbook-xsl build
environment set up, you are likely to run into some other errors.
The best way to get help with them is probably to get on the
#docbook channel on irc.freenode.net and look for me (my handle
there is #xmldoc) or Norm Walsh (ndw) or Camille B¸«±gnis (camil)
and tell what error messages you're getting, and one of us can
walk you through fixing them (if we have time...)
