Announcement
  • Refer to JSR 206 Maintenance Release, JAXP 1.6.0 is the last JAXP standalone release. JAXP sources were integrated into OpenJDK repositories since OpenJDK 7. The development work has shifted since to the OpenJDK community. From now on, the development work will be done exclusively within the OpenJDK community. JAXP belongs to the Core Libraries group. Please join us at OpenJDK corelibs dev and file bugs in the JDK Bug System under category xml/specific package (e.g. javax.xml.parsers) or xml/jaxp.
  • JAXP 1.6.0 is released and can be downloaded in the download area. Please see Release Notes for more details. JAXP 1.6.0 is in Java SE 8.0.

Project Description

Welcome to the JAXP Reference Implementation Project. This project is part of Project GlassFish and is in the JWSDP subcommunity on Web Services and XML at java.net.

This project develops and evolves the code base for the reference implementation of the JAXP specification. The current code base supports JAXP 1.6 and the project will track future versions of the JAXP specifications.

Introduction

The Java API for XML Processing (JAXP) enables applications to parse, transform, validate and query XML documents using an API that is independent of a particular XML processor implementation. JAXP provides a pluggability layer to enable vendors to provide their own implementations without introducing dependencies in application code.  Using this software, application and tool developers can build fully-functional XML-enabled Java applications for e-commerce, application integration, and web publishing.

JAXP is a standard component in the Java platform. An implementation of the JAXP 1.4 is included in Java SE 6.0 and OpenJDK7, JAXP 1.5 in OpenJDK7 update 40 as well as in Java SE 8.0, and JAXP 1.6 is now in Java SE 8.0. JAXP 1.4 is a maintenance release of JAXP 1.3 with support for the Streaming API for XML (StAX), JAXP 1.5 is a maintenance release of JAXP 1.4 with new security related properties, and JAXP 1.6 is part of prepare for modularization.

Overview

  • Standards Supported:

JAXP supports a number of different industry-wide standards to process XML documents. The exact list of standards depends on the version of JAXP, with newer versions extending older versions to preserve backward compatibility. Use the links on the right hand side of this page for further information on the JAXP versions available from this project.

  • Status: JAXP 1.4 is Production Quality in J2SE 6.0, 1.5 is Production Quality Development in OpenJDK 7 and OpenJDK 8, 1.6 is Production Quality in OpenJDK 8.
  • Licenses: CDDL v1.1 and GPL v2
  • Governance: Same as Project GlassFish
  • Goals: Detailed Overview
