Can somebody please tell me what is JAXP and Xerces ?
Is JAXP the Sun's implementation of DOM and SAX?

Saritha,
JAXP is Sun's implementation of a JAVA XML Parser. You can find more information at: www.javasoft.com/xml
Xerces is also a Java XML Parser that is part of the Apache project. Information can be found at: xml.apache.org/xerces-j/index.html
