Re: IE5 Parser
Hi, My use of IE5 MSXML has shown it to be very fast and generally the best XML parser available around if you're using IE on the client or server and want to load the entire doc into mem etc. The ActiveDOM parser (http://www.vivid-creations.com/dom/index.htm) from Vivid is essentially a simpler version with the same interfaces, but it doesn't need IE to be installed. ( XSL + validation is coming later in the year) Cheers, Rich. ----- Original Message ----- From: Hunter, David <dhunter@M...> To: 'John Evdemon' <John_Evdemon@f...>; XML Developers <xml-dev@i...> Sent: 8 July 1999 16:46 Subject: RE: IE5 Parser > > From: John Evdemon [mailto:John_Evdemon@f...] > > IE5's parser is designed for client-level parsing since it > > was imbedded in the > > browser, correct? > > > > This implies (at least to me) relatively high-risk -- the > > parser's performance > > on a back end server is an unknown. > > > > Has anyone seen/done any benchmarks? > > > > Can it handle the volume? > > > > Thanks! > > I'm not sure if the MSXML parser was designed with the client in mind or not > - I recall hearing somewhere that someone at Microsoft was annoyed that > MSXML was so closely tied to the browser, since it was <em>meant</em> for > the server.
