I think you are getting the same error I was using Oracle JDeveloper.  Do you get this error when trying to do something like this:

SAXBuilder builder = new SAXBuilder("org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser", true );

If so, it is certainly a ClassLoader issue.  First, double check how you are including the Xerces library in your project.  Also, verify if there are any other instances of this class in other libraries you may be including.

If everything appears correct, you may try the following:

In your JDK directory, put the xercesImpl.jar file in the jdk/jre/lib/ext folder.  You may also need to add the file xml-apis.jar.

I will be interested to know if this works for you.  Also, I would be glad to hear from anyone who may have a more elegant solution.
