What is the difference between JAXP and SAX?
Which is preferable to use and why?
And also what is advantageous to use SAX2.0 rather than SAX1.0.
Any sites regarding above please let me know.
thanks in advance

JAXP is what Sun calls the current Java API for XML Processing. See
The current Java 1.4 includes basic XML processing capability for both DOM and SAX processing - these libraries were previously (SDK 1.3) distributed as JAXP.
The current JAXP appears to add some additional functionality that you may not need.
