Simplify XML processing with VTD-XML

As the enabling technology for next-generation Web-based applications, XML is both easy and straightforward to learn and use. Unfortunately, the same thing cannot be said about the current state of XML processing: the Document Object Model and the Simple API for XML are both too slow, inefficient, and difficult to use. Providing a broadly useful and advanced option that goes beyond DOM and SAX, VTD-XML is the next-generation XML processing model that simplifies both XML programming and selection of an XML processing model. By highlighting some of the key technical strengths of VTD-XML using the latest performance benchmark numbers and code examples, this article demonstrates that VTD-XML has the potential to finally take the "monkey" off the back of enterprise architects constantly struggling with the decision of whether to use DOM or SAX.
