XML parsing is now sexy!

Description

A simple, high performance, typed XML parser based upon Android sax parser but written in pure Java. SEXP gives callbacks for all parsing events and being written in pure java allows faster and more comprehensive testability.

Moreover SEXP is a pull-parsing XML deserialiser which affects both performance (no reflection is required) and low memory footprint (unncessary objects are not allocated). Our testing shows that SEXP performs:

You can refer to the following micro-benchmarking for further information.

Adding to your project

To start using this library, add these lines to the build.gradle of your project:

repositories {
    jcenter()
}

dependencies {
    compile 'com.novoda:sexp:1.0.8'
}

Simple usage

String XML =
            "<novoda>" +
              "<favouriteColour>Blue</favouriteColour>" +
            "</novoda>";

ElementFinderFactory factory = SimpleEasyXmlParser.getElementFinderFactory();
elementFinder = factory.getStringFinder();
Streamer<String> streamer = new SimpleStreamer(elementFinder);
String favouriteColour = SimpleEasyXmlParser.parse(XML, streamer);

private static class SimpleStreamer implements Streamer<String> {

    private final ElementFinder<String> elementFinder;
    private final String elementTag;

    public SimpleStreamer(ElementFinder<String> elementFinder, String elementTag) {
        this.elementFinder = elementFinder;
        this.elementTag = elementTag;
    }

    @Override
    public RootTag getRootTag() {
        return RootTag.create("novoda");
    }

    @Override
    public void stream(RootElement rootElement) {
        elementFinder.find(rootElement, elementTag);
    }

    @Override
    public String getStreamResult() {
        return elementFinder.getResultOrThrow();
    }
}
