Xerces2 project is the next generation of high performance, fully compliant XML parsers in the Apache Xerces family.
This new version of Xerces introduces the Xerces Native Interface (XNI), a complete framework for building parser components and configurations that is extremely modular and easy to program.
The Apache Xerces2 parser is the reference implementation of XNI but other parser components, configurations, and parsers can be written using the Xerces Native Interface.
Xerces2 is a fully conforming XML Schema processor.
Xerces2 also provides a complete implementation of the Document Object Model Level 3 Core and Load/Save W3C Recommendations and provides a complete implementation of the XML Inclusions (XInclude) W3C Recommendation. It also provides support for OASIS XML Catalogs.
Xerces2 is able to parse documents written according to the XML 1.1 Recommendation, except that it does not yet provide an option to enable normalization checking as described in section 2.13 of this specification.
It also handles namespaces according to the XML Namespaces 1.1 Recommendation, and will correctly serialize XML 1.1 documents if the DOM level 3 load/save APIs are in use.
Here are some key features of "Xerces2":
eXtensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 Third Edition Recommendation
Namespaces in XML Recommendation
eXtensible Markup Language (XML) 1.1 First Edition Recommendation
Namespaces in XML 1.1 Recommendation
XML Inclusions (XInclude) Version 1.0 Recommendation
Document Object Model (DOM) Level 3 Core, Load and Save, (DOM) Level 2 Core, Events, and Traversal and Range Recommendations
Simple API for XML (SAX) 2.0.2 Core and Extensions
Java APIs for XML Processing (JAXP) 1.3
XML Schema 1.0 Structures and Datatypes Second Edition Recommendations
What's New in This Release:
As of this release, Xerces' distribution includes the Xalan serializer.
Xerces and Xalan now share a common serialization codebase.
The DOM Level 3 serialization support which was in Xerces has been migrated into the Xalan serializer, and Xerces' native serializer has been deprecated.
This release also upgrades the xml-commons resolver to version 1.2 (which provides support for OASIS XML Catalogs 1.1), introduces a few minor features, and fixes several bugs.
