What is SAX?

K V R K Varma

SAX, or SimpleAPI for XML, provides a framework for parsing XML data.

SAX define events which applications can be notified of during the parsing process.

SAX defines the org.sax.ContentHandler interface with methods such as startDocument() and endDocument(). Applications that implement this interface and are registered with the parser are called back during the parse of the XML document.
