Hi All;

Someone just looked at my code that uses Digester and commented that they
thought it would be slow (compared to SAX or DOM directly) because it would
need to use "reflection a lot".

I am not sure what this means. But since I am using  digester a lot I would
like to know if it is does use a lot of resources (compared to other XML
parsing API) and if there is anything I can do about it. If someone could
point me to some reference articles that would be great too, I may need to
present some evidence to support my choice of Digester.
