SAXON is a Java class library providing a range of services on top of SAX; it is particularly useful for writing applications to process specific document types. I have used it to do a wide variety of XML-to-XML and XML-to-HTML transformations, and to load XML data into relational databases.
I have produced a new release which is available for
Changes in this version:
The idea of the FREE-DOM integration is that you can now write the same event-driven SAXON application to process a document serially, from raw parser events, or to do a traversal of the DOM tree. The only difference is that in the latter case, additional facilities are available, for example the ability to update the DOM and generate a new XML document from it.
(Incidentally, this works by having a SAX driver that traverses the DOM instead of parsing an input file. This is probably a useful animal in its own right, outside the SAXON context).
I have produced a number of ad-hoc XML applications using SAXON and I feel the functionality has now stabilised to do most of the things I find useful, including things like sorting and automatic numbering of elements. Feedback from others will be very welcome, however.
I have also re-released GedML, a SAXON application that
processes genealogical data encoded in XML. It is on:,br>

PS: Congratulations to Don Park, who put just the hooks I needed into FREE-DOM to enable the integration.
