An Overview On XML Parsing

As XML has become a standard for data representation and exchange, XML data processing becomes more and more important for server workloads like web servers and database servers. Every application that processes information from XML documents needs an XML Parser which reads an XML document and provides interface for user to access its content and structure. One of the most time consuming part is data parsing. Parsing is a core operation performed before an XML document can be navigated, queried, or manipulated. Recently, high performance XML parsing has become a topic of considerable interest. In this paper, we are giving an overview on parsing and different available parsers in market today. We focus on a survey of four representative XML parsing models—DOM, SAX, StAX, and VTD—reveals their suitability for different types of applications.
