Java XML

From HandWiki
Short description: Application programming interface

The Java programming language XML APIs developed by Sun Microsystems consist of the following separate computer-programming APIs:

Only the Java API for XML Processing (JAXP) is a required API in Enterprise Java Beans Specification 1.3.

A number of different open-source software packages implement these APIs:

  • Xerces — One of the original and most popular SAX and DOM parsers
  • Xalan — XSLT/XPath implementation, included in JDK 1.4 and above as the default transformer (XSLT 1.0)
  • Saxon — alternative highly specification-compliant XSLT/XPath/XQuery processor (supports both XSLT 1.0 and 2.0)
  • Woodstox — An open-source StAX and SAX (as of version 3.2) implementation
