xom - XOM is a new XML object model
||openSUSE JAVA all
XOM is designed to be easy to learn and easy to use. It works very
straight-forwardly, and has a very shallow learning curve. Assuming
you're already familiar with XML, you should be able to get up and
running with XOM very quickly.
XOM is the only XML API that makes no compromises on correctness. XOM
only accepts namespace well-formed XML documents, and only allows you
to create namespace well-formed XML documents. (In fact, it's a little
stricter than that: it actually guarantees that all documents are
round-trippable and have well-defined XML infosets.) XOM manages your
XML so you don't have to. With XOM, you can focus on the unique value
of your application, and trust XOM to get the XML right.
XOM is fairly unique in that it is a dual streaming/tree-based API.
Individual nodes in the tree can be processed while the document is
still being built. The enables XOM programs to operate almost as fast
as the underlying parser can supply data. You don't need to wait for
the document to be completely parsed before you can start working with
XOM is very memory efficient. If you read an entire document into
memory, XOM uses as little memory as possible. More importantly, XOM
allows you to filter documents as they're built so you don't have to
build the parts of the tree you aren't interested in. For instance, you
can skip building text nodes that only represent boundary white space,
if such white space is not significant in your application. You can
even process a document piece by piece and throw away each piece when
you're done with it. XOM has been used to process documents that are
gigabytes in size.
XOM includes built-in support for a number of XML technologies
including Namespaces in XML, XPath, XSLT, XInclude, xml:id, and
Canonical XML. XOM documents can be converted to and from SAX and DOM.
