MDSAX 1.0 Beta 1 was released today:
There are now three packages:
com.jxml.mdsax contains filters which can be used independently of anything else.
com.jxml.mdsax.context contains the classes needed to define a parsing context, and filters which depend on that context.
com.jxml.mdsax.framework contains various factories which make up the optional mdsax framework.
As before, all filters are derived from John Cowan's ParserFilter:
The full api for mdsax is available at:
A suite of tests are available at:
These tests exercise the following:
test0: A trace of SAX document handler events before and after the element filter, displaying the XPointer for the element when present.
test1: A simple exercise of the document router, showing how PIs are queued until the document type is known.
test2: A minimalist exercise of the context filter.
test3: A simple exercise of the element router, showing which events are routed to specific element filters.
test4: Rather than simply filtering events, the ContextFilter is used to create an application-specific result, in this case a simple count of the number of elements found in the document.
This is Open Source Software:
