I am preparing for test 141. Which XML parser should I use to cover exam objectives? MS XML parser or JAXP?
Thanks

Go with JAXP, or even Xerces-J from xml.apache.org
BTW, JAXP is bundled with JDK 1.4. So you can infact just get JDK and automatically get JAXP as well as Crimson.

Thanks for the reply. I would also like to use JAXP because I am also a SCJP. But in Professional XML 2nd Edt., examples use MS XML Parser and that book is listed on IBM resource page for 141.
We are not asked any specific about Vendor-dependent parser in Exam, are we?
Thanks,

JAXP is not a parser at first, It is an interface for you to use any third-party parser, such as Apache Xecers, IBM XML4J etc. it makes your code portable in java platform.

I understand JAXP is not a parser.
What I really asked was does exam ask vendor-dependent parser questions? Because IBM has xml4j and it also has it's own functions on top of SAX and DOM.
