Extended StAX API


Welcome to the metro-stax-ex project. This project contains a few extensions to complement JSR-173 StAX API in the following areas:

  • Enable parser instance reuse (which is important in the high-performance environment like JAXB and JAX-WS)
  • Improve the support for reading from non-text XML infoset, such as FastInfoset.
  • Improve the namespace support.
