JAXP by Sun is an API that lets you switch parser implementations wihout having to change your code. This is from Sun's site:
The final release of the Java API for XML Processing (JAXP) 1.1 Optional Package is now available! JAXP enables applications to parse and transform XML documents using a pure Java API that is independent of a particular XML processor implementation. The final release supports the latest XML standards including SAX 2.0, and DOM Level 2, as well as including integrated support for XSLT.
