Careful there. I am easily insulted:-)
I am not a Java programmer (yet). Neither am I an XML parser writer.
However, what goes on in SAX-J discussions is important to me
because it will form the basis of what goes into SAX-IDL and
thusly into C++ and Python which I *do* write XML software in.
I do a lot of report generation/data harvesting from SGML/XML. That makes my
usage of these things fundamentally different from the viewing type applications
that (I believe) you are primarily interested in.
I do not believe my worries/concerns are any less valid than yours. My need
for a simple API is no less valid than yours. If someone
had said "hey lets do a simple XML API for read-only apps" I would not have
felt as concerned about dropped comments, pis, what have you.
If that was said when SAX started, I apologise for missing it and unreservedly
apologise for un-focusing the effort.
Happy new year to everyone.
