  1. Introduction to JAXP

    by , 04-27-2012 at 05:04 PM
    The Java API for XML Processing (JAXP) is for processing XML data using applications written in the Java programming language. JAXP leverages the parser standards Simple API for XML Parsing (SAX) and Document Object Model (DOM) so that you can choose to parse your data as a stream of events or to build an object representation of it. JAXP also supports the Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT) standard, giving you control over the presentation of the data and enabling you to convert ...

  2. The Benefits of JAXP

    by , 11-29-2011 at 01:58 AM
    One of the most important technologies available in java is the APIs used to work with XML. There are basically two ways to work with XML documents. SAX involves an event driven means of processing XML using callbacks to handle the relevant events. DOM involves using an in-house tree structure of the XML document. Sun Microsystems created a Java API for XML Processing (JAXP) toolkit which makes XML manageable for all developers to use. It is a key component for exploiting all the possibilities with ...

  3. Using the JAXP validation framework

    by , 11-28-2011 at 06:29 PM (My Java Tips)
    While working with XML documents, you need to validate the documents. You may use setValidating() method on a SAX or DOM factory. But Java 5.0 (JAXP 1.3) introduces JAXP validation framework which can also be used for validating XML documents.

    Using the JAXP validation framework is fairly simple and efficient. In JAXP 1.3, the validation is broken out into several classes within the new javax.xml.validation package. Lets go through the steps:

    1. Load the model in to ...

  4. SAXParserFactory Example

    by , 11-28-2011 at 06:17 PM (My Java Tips)
    To change the parser implementations, JAXP provides a class called SAXParserFactory. I will present an example that will show how to use this class.

    First thing is to create an instance of SAXParserFactory. After creating the new instance, we have to get he SAX-capable parser. For thos, factory provides a method. Good thing is that the JAXP implementation takes care of the vendor-dependent code and thus keeps the code clean. This factory has some other nice features, as well. Do explore ...

  5. Introduction to JAXP

    If you want to process XML data using applications written in the Java programming language, then JAXP is the best choice. JAXP stands for Java API for XML Processing. I will introduce JAXP in this post.

    JAXP can be called an abstraction layer since it does not introduces any new way to parse XML documents nor it provides different way of handling XML documents. Actually it makes using DOM and SAX easier. Using JAXP, you may habdle vendor-specific tasks that may arise when dealing ...
