Announcement: SAX 1.0gamma
Implementors have requested more time to test SAX 1.0 before it becomes final. There will be no additional changes other than bug fixes; however, since bugs have required several minor changes already, and since the final, official, righteous SAX 1.0 version might still be a week or more away, in the interest of openness I have uploaded SAX 1.0gamma (I don't like "beta2") to the following (new) URL: http://www.megginson.com/SAX/ (The final SAX 1.0 will be mirrored at http://www.microstar.com/XML/SAX/ as well). The latest JavaDoc is also available online. SAX is changing very little now, and it is probably safe to start basing implementations on it, as long as you're ready for a little tweaking. Here are the (very minor) changes since 1.0beta: Interface Changes ----------------- - bug fix: changed parameter to Parser.setLocale() to java.util.Locale (a single string is insufficient) - bug fix: added default constructor to InputSource, to simplify subclassing - bug fix: removed "extends IOException" from InputSource (it was retained accidentally from an earlier revision) - bug fix: in the ParserFactory helper class, used "org.xml.sax.parser" instead of "sax.parser" for the system property name Documentation Changes --------------------- - doc fix: clarify that attributes in AttributeList are zero-indexed - doc fix: clarify that Parser objects are non-re-entrant but reusable - doc fix: clarify that the parser should never modify the InputSource provided by the application - doc fix: clarify that the parser should not deliver the endDocument event until EOF or a non-recoverable error - moved sample drivers to com.megginson.sax package All the best, David -- David Megginson ak117@f...
