RE: [xml-dev] jar files question

The home for SAX is [1] You can get
the SAX1 and SAX2 distributions form there.

The DOM API is actually a series of interfaces, with each
DOM specification defining a new set, or revisions of these interfaces.
See [2]. There's usually a set of Java bindings (i.e interfaces) that can be
downloaded, e.g. [3] is the DOM Level 1 interfaces.

However each parser will have its own implementation of those
interfaces, and will bundle a copy of the interfaces as well so you
rarely need to download the interfaces separately. The implementations
are obviously parser specific and are versioned with the parser.

You mention IBM, Xalan, Xerces and FOP. I assume by IBM you
mean xml4j? If so then xm4lj was donated to the Apache project
and became Xerces. As Xalan and FOP are also Apache projects,
and use Xerces by default I'd expect them to use the same
DOM implementation underneath. The relevant docs ought to
list any dependencies on versions of the underlying parser.

Hope that helps!
