Which are the java/xml parsers that are used widely in the development of commercial software? I found that there are quite a few ...like Xerces, Xml4j from IBM etc which are free to download but I am not sure if a developer is encouraged to use them to develop commercial software? Any input is greatly appreciated! Thanks Raj
The Apache organization does not care if you use Xerces as long as they get credit (read the license in the download). Sun's JAXP will eventually be part of the standard release and you can use that. Actually, I have never heard of anybody selling a parser.
