Pals,
We happened to use JDOM until recently got JOX for XML parsing in Java. JDOM was my favorite because I have pretty much faith on its developer Jason Hunter, the Servlet Guru. I think many of you already used it, yet here is two interesting articles from JavaWorld on JDOM.

What API do you use for XML parsing in Java? :roll:

I use Xerces. I like it because of it's SAX implementation. I really haven't played with it's DOM implementation too much.

Thanks Phil. I think JDOM is so rich that we may think of it being included in the future version of JDK as XML parsing API.
Does it sound interesting?

I think that it depends on the usage of XML before you can choose. SAX is very fast, JDom isn't but JDom has a really nice Tree-structure.
I've been using both. And found that SAX was a lot easier to use than JDom, but offcourse that will depend on the users experience with those.
I've also tried Electric XML, it implements both SAX and JDom I think, but it isn't that nice as it is said to be. But fast yes. I've heard rumors of it being the fasted parser available for XML.
Regards,
Mark Monster

I am going to move this to "XML and Related Technologies".
