An Overview of the XML-APIs

     

Here we have  listed all  the major Java APIs for XML. But we will concentrate most on JAXP in our coming tutorials.

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.
DOM4J
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 Communications
The JAX-RPC API defines a mechanism for exchanging synchronous XML-based messages between applications. ("Synchronous" means "send a message and wait for the reply".)
 
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.
