I am really pleased to announce:
The XML Parser in Java (MSXML) from Microsoft Corporation is now
available for download from:
This is the second piece of XML technology from Microsoft, the first being the Channel Definition Format support in Internet Explorer 4.0.
The Microsoft XML Parser is a validating XML parser written in Java. Once parsed, the XML document is exposed as a tree through a simple set of Java methods.
We are actively working with the W3C to standardize an XML API. (See the W3C overview page for the Document Object Model http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/DOM/. The DSSSL/grove Object Model is carefully studied by the DOM group).
These methods support reading and/or writing XML structures, such as the Channel Definition Format (CDF) or other text formats based on XML.
This version (Alpha 1.0) of the parser implements the W3C working draft of the XML specification dated March 31, 1997 (http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xml-961114.html) and will be revised to reflect future W3C changes to the specifications.
The following components of the XML spec have not yet been implemented (but will be soon):
Full source code is provided, royalty free, and will be updated frequently to fix bugs and to reflect future W3C changes to the specifications. Read the Microsoft XML Parser in Java license agreement: http://www.microsoft.com/standards/xml/xmllic.htm.
Enjoy, and let us make XML a success story!
