A Decent XML Parser

29. July, 2008

Since there isn’t one, I’ve started writing one myself. Main features:

  • Allows 100% round-tripping, even for weird whitespace between attributes in elements
  • Suitable for building editors and filters which want to preserve the original file layout
  • Error messages have line and column information
  • Easy to reuse
  • XML 1.0 compatible

You can download the latest sources here as a Maven 2 project.
