Fragserver is a Java Web Application designed for running on Apache
Xalan, Xerces).  It gives two servlets:
  fragbody  retrieves a branch of an XML document, as specified using an
  fragserver constructs a small Fragment Context Specification for the
     same document and Xpath

For example, if I have the XML document http://www.example.com/a/b.xml
and I want the fragment  //c  (i.e, the first c element found and its

Download from
This is a .war file: you can use jar to unbundle it. Source code and
