Silfide XML Parser 0.82 Release is now available at:


The Silfide Working Group is happy to announce the availability of the Silfide 
 XML Parser (SXP, v0.82 - Tue Dec 22 1998 ), a release of our validating XML 
Parser writing in Java.

SXP entirely implements the XML 1.0 Recommendation and most of its satellite 

 - Document Object Model Level 1 (DOM REC 1 October, 1998)
 - XML Namespaces (WD 16 September 1998)
 - XPointer (WD 03-03-1998)
 - XLink (WD 03-03-1998)

SXP provides also a driver for the SAX interface (fr.loria.xml.sax.SAXDriver).

Both of the XML and XPointer parsers are developed with the tool JavaCC.

Changes from last revision:

 - Implements the DOM REC 1.0  - 1 October, 1998
 - Added a flag to validate or not a Document even if the DTD is provided 
(default, SXP will validate)
 - ID/IDREF checking is done during validation
 - Implementation of the DOMImplementation interface. Construct a DOM Document.
 - An XML Writer that format (tabbed, indented) an XML document. An interface 
is provided to specify your own XMLOutputFormat.
 - Uses now JavaCC0.8pre2 (was using JavaCC 0.72)
 - Some bugs has been fixed (thanks for your bug reports)
 - Some new bugs may have been introduced (!)

Java source files, java classes, some samples and documentation are freely 
available here:
