alphaWorks Announces 100% Pure Java XML Parser

AlphaWorks, a division of IBM, this week announced the release of the updated version of its XML parser, XML for Java.

XML for Java is an XML processor written in 100% pure Java, together with a library (package) that is used for parsing and generating XML documents.

The XML for Java package (com.ibm.xml.parser) contains all the classes and methods that are used for parsing, generating, manipulating, and validating XML documents.

alphaWorks is billing XML for Java as "the most robust XML processor currently available," and said the product conforms more closely to the XML 1.0 Recommendation than other XML parsers.

eXtensible Markup Language (XML) is a data format that enables developers to create their own proprietary tags for markup. XML itself is actually a "metalanguage" that was designed in accordance with SGML, the international standard metalanguage from which HTML was developed.

For more information on XML, be sure to check out the XML Files on WebDeveloper.com.

alphaWorks is offering developers a chance to download the current version of XML for Java for free. To find out more about XML for Java, or to download a copy, visit the XML for Java Web site.
