XML SIG: XML Performance Comparison with XPB4J
Come and hear the various factors that influence performance of XML processors and the findings of measurement tests carried out on a wide variety of Java parser/processor implementations.
XML Performance Comparison with XPB4J
XPB4J is an open source Java software hosted at SourceForge to measure and compare performance of XML Processing programs. It consists of (a) Code to carry out certain XML processing tasks; (b)Code and script to run the processing tasks and report performance measurements; and (c) XPB4J Framework to plug code and scripts for any processing.
As of XPB4J-0.90, it includes code for a specific processing activity, called XStat Processing, to collect certain statistics on an XML file. Different implementations of this activity are provided, each to use a different parsing APIs such as SAX, DOM, JDOM, XmlPull, DOM4J and XSLT. You can find more about XPB4J at its home page http://www.pankaj-k.net/xpb4j.
This talk will discuss the various factors that influence performance of XML processors and the findings of measurement tests carried out on a wide variety of Java parser/processor implementations. These findings provide a useful basis for selecting appropriate XML processing technologies and implementations for specific use scenarios.
