Rasmus Torkel's XML Library
Welcome to my page. I am publishing here my Java library that contains mostly classes for parsing and writing XML but also some other bits and pieces.
You may wonder why I felt a need to write an XML library. Basically I was dissatisfied with what was available. I felt that with the existing libraries an inordinate amount of code is required to parse relatively simple XML files. My library is different. It is very simple to use and application programmers will need to write a minimal amount of code to get their XML parsing job done. I have take great care to ensure that my library produces useful error messages that include location and to make information available to application programmers to enable them to generate similarly useful error messages including location. I have written an overview page with lots of examples. There is also Javadoc.
The library is compatible with Java 1.6.
For the time being, you can download the library for free. There are some terms and conditions. In summary, if you download now, the terms and condition allow you to use the library for free and in perpetuity and allow you to incorporate it into commercial products and custom software. There are some restrictions on how you can share it. There are also some protections in place so that my authorship is not obscured.
I welcome constructive feedback. If you are using my library, please let me know. If you considered my library and then decided not to use it, I would also be interested. You can contact me by email. To avoid spam robots, I have to be a bit cryptic. My address is "com", preceded by the dot symbol, preceded by "rasmustorkel", preceded by the at symbol, preceded by "xml".
