An Overview of the XML-APIs
Here we have listed all the major
for XML. But we will concentrate most on
JAXP in our coming
- JAXP: Java API for XML Processing
- This API provides a common interface for
creating and using the standard SAX, DOM, and XSLT APIs in Java,
independent to vendor's implementation .
- JAXB: Java Architecture for XML Binding
- This standard defines a mechanism for writing out
Java objects as XML (marshalling) and for creating Java objects
from such structures (unmarshalling).
- JDOM: Java DOM
- An alternative to DOM, that creates a tree of objects from an XML structure. The
resulting tree is much easier to use, and it can be created from an XML
structure without a compilation step.
- Although it is not on the JCP standards track,
DOM4J is an open-source, object-oriented alternative to DOM that is in
many ways ahead of JDOM in terms of implemented features. It is an excellent alternative for Java developers who need to
manipulate XML-based data.
- JAXM: Java API for XML Messaging
- The JAXM API defines a mechanism for exchanging asynchronous
XML-based messages between applications. ("Asynchronous" means
"send it - forget it".)
- JAX-RPC: Java API for XML-based Remote Process
- The JAX-RPC API defines a mechanism for exchanging
synchronous XML-based messages between applications.
("Synchronous" means "send a message and wait for the
- JAXR: Java API for XML Registries
- The JAXR API provides a mechanism for publishing
available services in an external registry, and for consulting the
registry to find those services.
