JDOM Makes XML Easy
JasonHunter, Mark Logic

Track: Java
Date: Wednesday, July 24
Time:1:45pm - 2:30pm
Location:Marina III

JDOM (JSR-102) is an open source Java API for processing XML documents that's both simple and convenient. At a high level, it's similar to the DOM, but since JDOM was designed specifically for Java rather than for multiple languages, it feels much more natural and "right" to Java programmers. This session -- for both beginners and experts -- teaches you how to use JDOM to easily and efficiently read and write XML documents from your Java programs while automatically maintaining well formedness. For people familiar with JDOM, there will be coverage and explanation of the new features added in Beta 8.

We'll end with a discussion of our experience in putting JDOM through Sun's Java Community Process (JCP) as a Java Specification Request (JSR) the first open source project to become a JSR. The speaker is the JDOM Specification Lead and also Apache's representative to the Java Community Process.
