What is JAXP?

K V R K Varma

JAXP(Java API for XML Parsing), does not redefine SAX or DOM but ensures that all XML-Conformant parsers can be accessed within the Java applications through a standard pluggable layer.

These three API's (JAXP, SAX and DOM) make up the Java Developers toolkit for handling XML.

A complete JAXP reference is available here.
