XOM: When SAX is too stringy and DOM is too lumpy

A Presentation by Elliotte Rusty Harold at Room 822, The Institute of Education (Website) at 7pm on Wednesday 19 March (doors open 6:45pm).

DESCRIPTION

It is generally recognised that the standard APIs for processing XML have their drawbacks. SAX, though efficient, is hard to use, and DOM can be 'just plain ugly'.

XOM is a new XML object model developed by Elliotte Rusty Harold. It is an open source (LGPL), tree-based API for processing XML that strives for correctness and simplicity. XOM implementations are available for Java and Python.

In this 90 minute presentation, Elliotte will explain the philosophy behind XOM and give some demonstrations of how its use can boost productivity and lead to cleaner, more understandable code for XML processing.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Who should attend? -- Anybody and everybody involved in the programmatic processsing of XML.
