Excellent question. I'd leave the language open to the competitor. I'd leave the API open too, since the aim is to encourage experimentation. However, it would make benchmarking easier if the processor used an existing API: less harness code to write. Also, except for SAX and DOM, there is such a lack of standard APIs that mandating any particular ones seems useless. The other issue is whether you want to have one contest for XML-to-stream and a second contest for XML-to-tree. Personally I'd go for just XML-to-stream to keep it within the reach of single developers. (XML-to-tree could be a subsequent competition.) On your issue of N(O^2), I think Rick is referring to a potential problem of XML-to-Tree implementations, or maybe XPath etc traversers, rather than XML-to-stream processors necessarily. Cheers Rick
