This page describes the Saxon version of the Ælfred XML Parser.
This decision was taken because Saxon is now dependent on JDK 1.4, which includes its own XML parser, and therefore the original reason for bundling a parser with Saxon has disappeared.Nevertheless, the Ælfred parser offered some advantages over the Crimson parser included with JDK 1.4, and it is therefore now available as a free-standing download.This version branched some while ago from the version developed by David Brownell (see here), which is now packaged in the GNU XML library.David Brownell's version has added considerably more functionality (such as validation) and has grown correspondingly larger.The parser implements SAX2 and JAXP 1.1 parser interfaces.It has no DOM support, and no support for validation: in fact, it is about as stripped-down as an XML parser can get. The SAX2 and JAXP libraries are not included in the package; these must be installed separately.
They are available automatically if you use JDK 1.4. The JAR file includes no manifest, so placing the JAR file on your classpath will not make this the default JAXP parser.
To invoke this parser via JAXP, you must explicitly set the system property Ælfred was originally developed by David Megginson at Microstar (which no longer exists), and placed more or less in the public domain.
This is a modified version of the Ælfred XML parser from Microstar.
I have taken a few of David Brownell's updates, repackaged it, and fixed a few bugs.
All cahnges are clearly documented in the source code.
The result is distributed under the terms of Microstar's original terms and conditions, which are as follows: AElfred, Version 1.2 Microstar's Java-Based XML Parser Copyright (c) 1997, 1998 by Microstar Software Ltd.
