There are two ways to distribute them via APT: Either at your own web site
or as part of Debian itself. If you want to distribute them you either
need to become a Debian developer or find a sponsor (a Debian developer who
uploads the package for you).

Xercex-J from the Apache XML project contains all JAXP classes and they
are free (Apache/BSD license).
