While there are similarities, there are many differences.
This smallx technology was designed to process XML infosets. The
XML pipelines between Orbeon and smallx is just validation that it is
idea for XML processing. In fact, there are many other projects
XML pipelining technology (e.g. Cocoon, SXPipe, Markup Technology,
In my case, this code base has been around for about four years and so

In addition, my essential requirement is that it support streaming of
infosets. I process very large documents and need to keep my memory
The Orbeon Presentation Server project/product is really good
I'm not certain that the XML Pipelining technology is separable at the
time. In the smallx project, the XML processing technology is a
project (internally) from the J2EE servlet container integration.
Ultimately, while I use the XML Pipelining technology to implement web
and web applications, I have other uses in processing XML for
of those contexts.
I would say, convergence on *one* XML pipelining specification language
be a really good thing!
