Projects / FastParser


Fast Parser is a high performance Java XML parser. Benchmarks measure it to be up to 100%+ faster than Xerces and the JDK1.4 integrated parser. It is ideal for Web services (SOAP) and XSL. The core parsing package (without DOM) is very compact. It features SAX Level 1 and 2 compliance, JAXP compatibility, namespace support, integration with JXMLPad for real time parsing, modular libraries, an embedded device mode (including minimal memory usage), optional XML Comment support, CDATA support, the ability to include any node type with a custom NodeFactory, and a walker for easily navigating through XML trees. Many API samples and benchmark tests are included. JDK1.1 or later is required.
