An overview of XML parsers in Knopflerfish

XML Parsers

There are several XML parsers included in Knopflerfish, serving different purposes.

The kXML parser is a light-weight, low foot-print xml parser that provides all the basic parse functionality, but has limitations compared to a more full featured parser. x

A more full featured parser is Xerces2 from Apache. Knopflerfish includes xerces, a bundlified version of Xerces 2.10.1. Alongside with xerces is also the xalan, a bundlified version of Xalan-Java, version 2.7.1.

There is also the Crimson-XML bundle which is primarily used in older version of Java that does not provide built-in XML, as well as for backwards compatibility.
