   Re: [xml-dev] Including XMLs in XML

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I would slightly question your "without a parser" sentiment. Perhaps the 
XML you'll deal with is fairly regular, and won't contain unexpected 
Unicode values, or CDataSections, or comments that look like markup, or 
entities, but over time that can (and likely will) change.

The other thing to consider is testing. In the general case, the 
processing you'd need to do is probably comparable in complexity to just 
using a parser, and the "off the shelf" ones have the benefit of 
extensive testing.

A SAX parser, like say Xerces-j [1] or Piccolo [2] can be made to work 
even on 200Mb files with quite low memory requirements and high 
processing speed.

Another approach, for specific markup to handle the includes, is 
XInclude [3].
