Which Java-XML library or technology is best for my needs?
I am working on a desktop application which communicates with a server application over HTTP. On both the applications, Java object model is similar.
I want to use XML to transfer data between the 2 apps. Please tell me which JAVA-XML technology or libarary is best for my case. Since it is a desktop application, I am looking for some library with moderate footprint. Also it should be efficient as the amount of data contatined within a single object can be huge (due to big object model).
Someone suggested that we can also send serialized objects (Base64 encoded) on the wire and there is no need to use XML. Please suggest me how suitable this can be, if i dont use XML and send just a serialized object.
