Subject Re: OT - Jdk1.4 XML support
Date Fri, 30 Aug 2002 10:28:13 GMT

as you now get with the JDK 1.4 JAXP, and defaults DOM, SAX parser, XSL-T
processor, you can do quite good job with XML. Be sure to understand that
JAXP is just a way to access to underlying DOM , SAX and XSL-T
implementation. The default ones in JDK 1.4 seems to be (looking at the
classes) Crimson for DOM/SAX parser and Xalan for XSL-T processor.

If you want to use other implementation of DOM/SAX or XSL-T, you can add
some jar, and change the parser configuration. So you always uses JAXP, but
the underlying librairies are the one you want.

Hope this help ,
