In Lark, my own private intern table was on char arrays, not strings. So when you parse a name out of the doc, you look it up before you even (expensively) make the String. The effect is that you end up not only intern()ing once per unique name, but only make that many String objects. The benefit of intern()ing was for the application not the parser (of course you have to document that the intern()ing is happening - I forget, was this advertised in SAX1? Should it be in SAX2?) I measured this as a huge saving. But I've heard that the String object has gotten a bit smarter in recent Javas, so maybe it's overkill now? -Tim xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
