Xerces has partial support for StAX but doesn't yet have an implementation
For testing purposes I'd suggest using Woodstox . It's a popular open
source StAX implementation which many Apache projects already use.
There's also a complete implementation of StAX in all versions of Java 6+,
so you could use that for testing too.
