Announcement: SAX 1.0 is finished

  • From: David Megginson <ak117@f...>

I am happy to announce public release 1.0 of SAX (the Simple API for
XML), a collaborative project of the members of the XML-DEV discussion
group.  The first release of SAX is in Java, but versions in other
programming languages may follow.  SAX is free for both commercial and
non-commercial use.

SAX is a common, event-based API for parsing XML documents.  The first
draft of SAX was supported by IBM's XML for Java, DataChannel's DXP,
James Clark's XP, and Microstar's AElfred parsers.  Support for Tim
Bray's Lark parser and Microsoft's MSXML parser was provided through
third-party drivers.

SAX fills the same role for XML that the JDBC fills for SQL: with SAX,
a Java application can work with any XML parser, as long as the parser
has a SAX 1.0 driver available.  SAX 1.0 drivers for the major parsers
will be appearing shortly.

For more information, or to download SAX 1.0 with two sample drivers
(Lark and MSXML), please visit the following URL:


Thanks and congratulations to everyone,

David Megginson
