Just the opposite. Most Java-based XML parsers now have native SAX
drivers in their own packages:
IBM XML for Java: com.ibm.xml.parser.SAXDriver
The two drivers in com.microstar.sax are the special cases, and they
will disappear once MSXML and Lark have native SAX drivers.
As for your other question, about determining what drivers are
available, there are a few options: I am going to recommend that we
use the property "sax.parser" to provide the class name for the
default SAX driver in Java implementations (I don't know the politics
of property names, though).
All the best,
