Hi all,
I am using XPathAPI. after that I refered a link http://www.docjar.com/docs/api/org/apache/xpath/XPathAPI.html
which says the operations are pretty expensive.
So could anyone please tell me which one is good approach DOM parser or XPathAPI?

Thanks in advance.

Since XPath has to use the regular JAXP API plus do a bunch of other stuff it should not be surprising that it is slower.


In my casual test for this article I found a huge time difference.

People use XPath for simplicity, flexibility, and clarity, not speed.
