You can access the JAXP specification, which is produced by Sun Microsystems, at the following URL: DOM Stream access to XML nodes is done by PL/SQL and Java APIs.
Nodes in an XML document can now exceed 64 KBytes by a large amount.
SAX processes the input document element by element and can report events and significant data to callback methods in the application.
The XML document in Example 4-1 is parsed as a series of linear events as shown in Figure 4-2.
Oracle XML parsing reads an XML document and uses DOM or SAX APIs to provide programmatic access to its content and structure.
You can use parsing in validating or nonvalidating mode.
In general, the SAX API provides the following advantages: The JAXP API enables you to plug in an implementation of the SAX or DOM parser.
