Dear Mr. Harold,
In your opinion which of the several XML
API's has the 'best' approach to tackle the
properties and the use of this language?
Thank you,

Hi Gian Franco,
Here is what I have extracted from item 31 of the book...

Unfortunately, not all standard APIs are as complete as you might wish, so you may sometimes need to tie yourself to a specific implementation.

There is no the 'best' approach to tackle the properties and the usage of the language... I hope you might want to have a look at the sample chapter...Here is the link.

There's no one best API that solves all needs. However, I am of course partial to my own XOM, that I think makes the 80/20 cut a lot better than most. It's Java only.
There are times, however, when SAX is the right choice, and also times when DOM is the right choice. It depends on the problem.
