Re: [xml-dev] better (?) than DOM

Not exactly what you are looking for, but System.Xml shipped a streaming validation API that provides for such things as expected elements in the V2.0 release (VS 2005).  It is used by the XML Editor in VS for schema-based intellisense.

Building something equivalent for Xerces would be non-trivial.  Xerces validation DFA does not provide links back to the original Element Declarations (which can be useful for looking up meta-data in the appinfo blocks).  Also, the typed-data support in Xerces seems less complete.  I used it to build a schema-aware xml canonicalizer (kinda) and had to hack around a number of minor issues.

element can (by the time you check decleration types and the like) take
about 15 method calls.

Does anyone know of any projects that provide more user friednly API's
