I have just uploaded a beta version of SAX 1.0, which you can download through the following URL (there is also a link to online JavaDoc documentation): http://www.microstar.com/XML/SAX/New/ The interface is now frozen except for bug fixes -- I promise not to tinker any more. I'll wait a couple of days to collect bug reports, then will fix any bugs or documentation typos reported and will announce SAX 1.0 to the rest of the world. PLEASE send in any bug reports as soon as possible, or the bugs may live on for years in the final SAX. There are a few significant changes from the last week's last pre-release, mostly because I have finally allowed myself to be worn down by good arguments from patient people: - everything that used to throw java.lang.Exception now throws SAXException; SAXException can embed any other kind of exception - use Java-specific InputStream and Reader classes wherever ByteStream and CharacterStream were used before - removed custom stream classes: ByteStream and CharacterStream in core; and ByteStreamAdapter, CharacterStreamAdapter, InputStreamAdapter, ReaderAdapter, and IOExceptionWrapper in helpers - added support for specified byte-stream encoding in InputSource - added helper classes AttributeListImpl and LocatorImpl - updated much documentation When I put together more documentation (beyond the verbose JavaDoc comments), I will provide an OMG-IDL definition of ByteStream and CharacterStream, which people can use as a guide for creating bindings across different programming languages. The java.io.InputStream and java.io.Reader classes can be mapped to these definitions. Thanks and congratulations to the members of XML-DEV. All the best, David -- David Megginson ak117@f...
