I am new to xml technology. I just learnt differences between Dom and sax parser.
Now my question is, in sax parser it self there are many parser like jaxp, xalan, crimsion. For What
this different parser is used for? Please can anyone help me with simple example.
Thanks in advance.

Crimson has folded. They've moved to Xerces version 2, I think.
Whereas JAXP is not a parser. It's some sort of wrapper compliant for parsers and transformers(XSLT).
Xalan is a transformer.
For more info, http://xml.apache.org/index.html
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
