Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-359) Add an XMLUtils class
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2007 01:16:50 GMT


Henri Yandell commented on LANG-359:

I think the idea has a lot of merit - do you have any examples of utility classes out there?

My experience was that every project finds a better parsing tool :) Dom4j, jdom, xom, xstream
etc etc.

> Please add an XMLUtils class that deals with most common functions required in working
with XML. Working directly with the w3 DOM is a PITA, and almost every project that needs
XML, implements it's own utility classes, hence much repeating and code duplication.
> IMHO this (commons-lang) is the best place for such an utility cause it would be similar
to StringUtils (used so much that everybody wishes it were part of the JDK :) )
