XML Utility Library

As part of some open source stuff I've been doing on the side I've had to generate and parse a lot of XML. I like working with the DOM because it's tree structure cleanly matches my needs, but the W3C API is *so* cumbersome. The DOM was designed to be implemented in any language, not just clean OO languages like Java, so any code using it will work but be ugly. After considering a few other XML libraries I decided to write a new one that would work with modern Java 5 language features like generics, enhanced for-each, and varargs. This library is super tiny because it simply wraps the standard javax.xml libraries in the JRE, but gives you a much nicer interface to work with. Here's how to use it (or download it here): Generating XML The XMLWriter class provides methods start() and end() to generate nested XML elements. start() has var args to let you set an unlimited number of attributes on your element. Ex: to write out the element foo with attributes version=0.01 and type=bar, do the following: out.start("foo","version","0.01","type","bar"); XMLWriter also uses method chaining to let you start and end an element on the same line. Here is a complete XML of generating XLM to the foo.xml file with a standard XML header, var args, and method chaining: XMLWriter out = new XMLWriter(new File("foo.xml"));out.header(); out.start("foo", "version","0.01","type","bar");for(int i=0; i
