easy XML parsing ?

ok, this should be very easy if you know it ...

Until now i've been parsing my XMLs with the SAX API in the xerces.jar library. My problem was that I was using it in an applet and slapping xerces along with the applet was making it too big...

So i wandered around the java packages searching for another way to parse the bastards (I just read an already made xml). And I found this:


SAXParser parser;
try {
parser = SAXParserFactory.newInstance().newSAXParser();
} catch (Exception ex) {
ex.printStackTrace();
}

and later I call

parser.parse(InputSource is, DefaultHandler dh)

.... and it works ! with no xerces ...

So my question is this: have I been living under a rock ??? the package javax.xml.parsers.* contains a real implemetation of an XML parser (however simple that is) ??? and this should work with no xerces, just the jre installed ??

thanks

If you check API documentation of J2SE1.4 you will see that it is javax.xml.* is included into standard API of java1.4

included in JDK.
so any user (not developer) having JRE1.4.x (not JDK) installed, should have no problems using my applet (even if i don't put xerces.jar in my codebase) ?

>> should have no problems using my applet

Did you use xerces in an Applet? Does the client have an M$ VM or Sun's VM?
