Main interfaces:

Drivers for Lark and MSXML:


Once again, I am announcing this pre-release only to XML-Dev.


There are some significant changes in since the 1998-04-10
pre-release, mostly the result of discussion on XML-Dev:

- stripped "SAX" prefix from all class names except SAXException (and

- added a new core interface org.xml.sax.CharacterStream

- added a new core class SAXParseException

- added three optional Java-specific classes:
  org.xml.sax.helpers.ReaderAdapter, and

- reworked EntityResolver to use two methods: resolveSystemId() and

- changed parse() methods in Parser interface (InputStream removed,
  and Reader replaced with CharacterStream)

- changed default behaviour for warnings and recoverable errors in
  HandlerBase to no-op

- updated much documentation

Thank you all for your help with the last pre-release -- I will look
forward to more comments and suggestions.

All the best,
