RE: vendor support for various parsers
As far as I am aware, all the parsers from Oracle, IBM, SUN are provided "as is" with no support. They are all part of developer programmes, alphaworks, early adopter programmes etc. IBM and SUN parsers are freely distributable in binary form as part of other products, subject to certain caveats. The standard license with Oracle's parsers prohibits commercial or production use - single developer use only. I tried to get some Y2K compliance statements from the vendors at one stage - IBM responded as follows: "The only official Y2K-certified version of the XML parser available through the IBM Websphere at this time is for XML4J". So you *might* get support for IBM's Java parser if it is purchased as part of Websphere (I don't think this applies to the XML4C C++ parser though).

We plan to use IBM's XML4C parser on HP UX. Does IBM give customer support for it ? What about Oracle and SUN. Also what will be the cost.
