Has anyone got some sort of reference or site which has a metrics on XML parser performance comparison? Scalability comparison would be good too.
All I've got here is http://www.xml-zone.com/articles/pm020101/pm020101-1.asp
I'm particularly looking at JDOM + Crimson. Any comments would be appreciated.
Have a look at:
It provides a comparison of most of the common parsers, both SAX & DOM and also provides some interesting metrics with regard to the JVM etc.
Have a look here,
They compare , Crimson, Xerces, JDOM, XPP and EXML. You can download all the testing code, and they have links to the parsers under the 'Resources' section.
Good article on the IBM site. As always, somewhat dated. We are using EXML. It is up to having a version 5 beta release (the article had access to 2.2 at the time) and it supports the DOM API as of version 4.
We are using it to serialize/deserialize Java objects to SOAP encoded XML form and it screams.
