   RE: [xml-dev] Editing huge files; recommended Java parsers?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

You can get XMLBeans from http://xmlbeans.apache.org/

The XmlCursor currently loads the entire document you're working on in
memory and you can walk/inspect it like DOM but with less overhead.
We're currently looking into a streaming version of XmlCursor.  Stay

You might want to look at the XML Cursor API provided by BEA XMLBeans.
allows you to walk through a document, token by token, and as needed
DOM-like objects of fragments. You can learn more from the on-line
