IBM DeveloperWorks has published an article that explains what JAXP actually is.

Hi Gayathri ,
JAXP is a specification + a parser
Through the specification one can plug in any parser like Xerces for example.
Thus we all need to use JAXP so that we can change the parser any time we want. It also as a parser along with it.
