XML:: Xerces implements the vast majority of the Xerces-C API (if you notice any discrepancies please mail the list).
The parser provides high performance, modularity, and scalability, and provides full support for Unicode.
Because it is based on Xerces-C, XML:: Xerces provides a validating XML parser that makes it easy to give your application the ability to read and write XML data.
Classes are provided for parsing, generating, manipulating, and validating XML documents.
For portability, care has been taken to make minimal use of templates, no RTTI, and minimal use of #ifdefs. Xerces2 Java is a library for parsing, validating and manipulating XML documents.
Xerces 2.x introduced the Xerces Native Interface (XNI), a complete framework for building parser components and configurations that is extremely modular and easy to program. There is no need for an XML application programmer to learn XNI if they only intend to interface to the Xerces2 parser using standard interfaces like JAXP, DOM, and SAX.
Piccolo is a small, extremely fast XML parser for Java.
It implements the SAX 1, SAX 2.0.1, and JAXP 1.1 (SAX parsing only) interfaces as a non-validating parser and attempts to detect all XML well-formedness errors. It is fully conforming: it detects all non well-formed documents. However it can parse all external entities: external DTD subsets, external parameter entities and external general entities.
The majority of the API is created automatically using Simplified Wrapper Interface Generator (SWIG).
However, care has been taken to make most method invocations natural to perl programmers, so a number of rough C edges have been smoothed over (See the Special Perl API Features section). Apache XML Commons provides an Apache-hosted set of SAX, DOM and JAXP interfaces for use in other xml-based projects.
The element declarations in an XML Schema can specify the namespace/s of the elements in the XML document.
The Xerces Java Parser 1.4.4 supports the XML 1.0 recommendation and contains advanced parser functionality, such as support for the W3C's XML Schema recommendation version 1.0, DOM Level 2 version 1.0, and SAX Version 2, in addition to supporting the industry-standard DOM Level 1 and SAX version 1 APIs.
XML:: Xerces is the Perl API to the Apache project's Xerces XML parser.
