Has anybody used SUN's new JAXP (Java API for XML Processing)? The final version 1.1 was just released, and this sounds pretty interesting. It basically gives you a pluggability layer on top of DOM, SAX, or XSLT, so that you can plug in any specific implementation of these APIs. Any experiences?

I use JAXP all the time. There is really no need to learn the details of creating and using the various Java XML parsers when you can plug them in to JAXP.

Actually, I always recommend using the Xerces XML API from The Apache Group (www.apache.org). In my opinion, the JAXP package is too stale ... and I kind of remember something about Sun donating the JAXP code to the Apache Group. Xerces has a large group of really good developers working on it so that it never gets stale. It also supports SAX level 2 which I believe JAXP does not.
Hope this helps
