Java Tutorial - Java Scipt :

Other XML Tools

There are many open source Java XML tools available. Almost all build upon or implement the W3C standards of SAX, DOM, and XSL. Some are focused on parsing XML, while others provide higher-level services built upon XML, such as transformation services. Perhaps the only exceptions are the XmlPull parsers, which must operate in leaner environments

 This section will concentrate on giving an overview of the most notable projects, with an emphasis on what value they add in comparison to the default implementations and also spelling the differences in philosophy behind the XML projects. Each project takes a different tack on exposing the functionality to parsing and working with XML. Depending on the type of project and the developers, a particular tool may prove to be the best fit. No one design approach is inherently better or worse than any other.
