Hi,
I am reading a huge xml file and writing elements to other file.
I am using SAX.
So are there any APIs or any wrapper over SAX so I can avoid the dirty code in SAX.

Thnaks in advance.

You might be able to use one of the XML "pipeline" toolkits.

I wrote this survey article (pt 1) and part two as an introduction to pipeline style processing.

I heard StAX as "DOM Ease with SAX Efficiency".
So Can i use StAX in this situation?

StAX is a "pull" parser as opposed to SAX which "pushes" events to your code. Some people find it conceptually easier to think about parsing this way and a StAX parser is easier to stop if you only need part of the data in the document.

You still have to write code to handle the specific "events" as the parser encounters each element of the XML document.

Did you look into the pipeline toolkits?
