<s1 title='Sample Programs'>
&ParserName; contains many useful samples to help you get
up-and-running with writing XML applications. Many of the sample
programs are even useful as standalone programs to help in
testing the validity of XML documents and/or debugging
The samples are organized either by API or by programming area in
the following categories:
<li><link idref='samples-dom'>DOM Samples</link></li>
<li><link idref='samples-sax'>SAX Samples</link></li>
<li><link idref='samples-jaxp'>JAXP Samples</link></li>
<li><link idref='samples-socket'>Socket Samples</link></li>
<li><link idref='samples-ui'>UI Samples</link></li>
<li><link idref='samples-xni'>XNI Samples</link></li>
<s2 title='Running the Samples'>
Running the sample applications requires that you have already
installed the Java Development Kit (JDK) or Java Runtime
Environment (JRE) on your computer and extracted the
If you do not already have a JDK already on your computer download
one from Oracle's Java website:
or from IBM's website
The sample applications described in the following pages support
Java 1.x (e.g. 1.1.8, etc) and/or Java 2 (e.g. 1.2.2, 1.3, etc).
The UI samples are written using Swing and require Java 2 in order
to run but all of the command line programs will run using Java 1.x.
Command lines examples on the following pages use the Windows path
separator ';' (semicolon) and directory separator
'\' (backslash). On UNIX, use the ':' (colon)
character to separate the JAR files in the classpath, and replace
Windows directory separator '\' (backslash) with
'/' (forward slash).
