New Java parser for MinXML
10:56, 13 Apr 2000 UTC | Simon St.Laurent

Shawn Silverman has written a new parser in Java for MinXML using a SAX 1.0 interface.

Though Silverman "can proudly say that it is 2379% bigger than the 28-line JavaScript one :), it has full UTF-8 and UTF-16 support via automatic detection of the input stream." This parser provides substantial conformance checking on the proper use of characters in element names, accounting for much of the size differential. This parser is not thread-safe.

There is no documentation provided, though the code is well-commented for javadoc. The parser is "prohibited from commercial use, unless discussed with Shawn", but can be used freely for non-commercial applications provided that credit is given.
