Who wrote this text? I doubt computer geeks need a wiki entry for this. Can we tone it down a bit??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 17:25, 13 April 2006

Could you be a little more constructive in your criticism? Why does this article bother you so much? -- 14:47, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
I am not sorry this article is here, and not sorry for what it says. But it needs much more! It needs a great deal of broader explanation and context. I have decades of computer tech experience, and I can only just barely guess what this article is about. After looking at the SAX and DOM articles, I still don't even really know what they are about, let alone understand the content. 20:09, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
May be. But the Russian article is more informative. :) 13:02, 26 January 2007 (UTC)
Well that does it. We have to get some good old fashion cold-war-era arms race going on here. But with wikis. A wiki-race. Unfortunetly, I know next to nothing about SAX vs. DOM and I was more interested in expat. 22:36, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

State-dependent or -independent?[edit]

Footnote three, annotating an assertion that "SAX processes documents state-dependently", says just the opposite: "In a nutshell, SAX is oriented towards state independent processing, where the handling of an element does not depend on the elements that came before. StAX, on the other hand...". Just wanted to check if I was missing something before changing this - to get the logic entirely backwards would seem a strange mistake to make -- Doubious (talk) 23:44, 2 September 2012 (UTC)


Should this article be listed in Category:XML parsers ? The java implementation is an XML parser, but the article discusses SAX as a standard. (talk) 13:37, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Virtually any kind of XML validation requires access to the document in full[edit]

I don't think that's an accurate statement at all. For example, in Java, most methods of javax.xml.validation.Validator throw SAX exceptions:

It seems like that phrase has been in here since 2007 with no citation to back it up: — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 00:12, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
