Hi ,
Does the Exam include specific questions related to parsers like
for eg..,
Xercers uses the methods public void parse(Input source Source)
public void parse( String System Id)

Crimson parser uses the methods public Document parse(InputSource source)
public Document parse(String uri)
and many more

Oracle Different methods.

Do we need to concentrate on the methods and their properties for the different classes ? If so ,is there any important key Interfaces that we should concentrate for the Exam?

Thank you
Jeni

NO

You dont need to know anything about the parsers !!!

If u are interested in your own to know about parsers, I think the book"Processing XML with JAva" talks a liitle about the different parsers !!!
here is the link : Different Parsers

Hope this helps

Good luck for the exam

Thank you Hari,
Also from the link you provided , Out of all the 17 chapters , what chapters should one concentrate for the exam . Also for DOM do we need to read those interfaces methods , input and output parameters ?? What kind of Questions do we get for DOM ? What about JDOM and JDOM model ???
Is lazy DOM more efficient than SAX for selective section of the XML document parsing ?

Thank you ,
Jeni

Hi Jeni,
The book as such is a wonderful book ...so its worth to read the entire book !!!

But from the certification point of view, I found the chapters about DOM and SAX very useful (chapters 6,7,8,9,10,11,12)..infact i can say that it is the best book I have read on these topics

The IBM exam covers only DOM 2.0 and SAX 2.0 ..So u dont have to worry abt JDOM or any other thing !!

I am not really sure abt the point of lazy DOm being more efficient then SAX for selective document parsing

As far as I know if the document is very large and you are not going to modify the document in memory, and not do any sort of frequent random searching in the document, SAX is the best choice

Hope this helps

good luck for the exam
