Sun announces new releases of Java APIs
22:10, 9 Dec 2000 UTC | Simon St.Laurent

Sun Microsystems announced the availability of early access versions of the Java API for XML Parsing 1.1 (JAXP) and the Java API for XML Messaging 1.0 (JAXM) (which has apparently not been released).

JAXP 1.1 updates JAXP's support for the Document Object Model (DOM) and Simple API for XML (SAX) from 1.0 to 2.0. It also includes support for the Transformation API for XML (TRAX). The implementation uses the Apache Crimson parser and most of the Xalan 2 XSLT processor.

Sun describes JAXM as "enabling B2B messaging through the ebXML standard", "an API for packaging and transporting business transactions using on-the-wire protocols being defined by, Oasis, W3C and IETF."

While the press release for JAXM claims that "the draft specification for JAXM is available through the JCP," no such specification appears on the Java Technology and XML site. However, a prototype for JAXM, the M project, is available.
