CookXmlDoc preview in Subversion

CookXmlDoc, a utility to document XML tag libraries for CookXml, is now in Subversion. CookXml is a uniquely XML parser that is not only fast, but also allows fast generation of custom XML parsers in Java. In the past, there was a problem of clearly documenting the semantics of the XML that is handled by CookXml tag libraries. This new tool, CookXmlDoc converts the XML tag library into a represenation that is suitable for output. It works very similar like JavaDoc that can take doclets to generate custom formats.... read more

CookXml 3.0 Released

CookXml, a unique XML data binding tool for Java (unmarshalling only) released version 3.0. All the sub-projects have been updated to reflect the changes.

The main feature of this version is the namespace handling. CookXml can parse XML files with or without namespace, or partially namespaced files. These three modes are provided to provide existing CookXml users the ability to parse existing XML files, doing minor extensions in namespace, or fully switching to namespaced XML formats. Despite the buggy crimson parser of JDK 1.4.2, CookXml is able to support namespaced attributes as well.... read more

CookXml NameSpace preview in Subversion

CookXml 3.0 preview, which adds XML namespace handling, is in Subversion. I also worked on CookSwing a bit to test two modes of parsing XML files. I will update CookSwt and other libraries when I get chance.

The two modes are, with namespace and without namespace. If you run CookSwingDemo, then tabledemo_ns.xml is a namespace version of XML which will be recognized by the default CookSwing tag library. CookSwing can also work without namespace, for backward compatibility.... read more

CookXml 2.5 Released

Introduction

CookXml is a powerful general purpose dynamic XML data binding tool (unmarshalling only). Unlike JAXB, CookXml loads user defined tag libraries at runtime to convert XML documents into Java Object. The result is a highly configurable yet efficient XML parser.

What's New

1. added a feature that allows one to call CleanupHook objects after DecodeEngine is finished. This feature is used in CookSwing where label's labelfor attribute requires a forward lookup for ids/variables. A simple way of doing it is basically caching the demand and calling setLabelFor after DecodeEngine has finished parsing the XML.... read more

CookXml JavaScript Extension Released

This extension gives CookXml the scripting capability using JavaScript (Mozilla Rhino http://www.mozilla.org/rhino/\). Java Web Start demo is available at

http://cookxml.sourceforge.net/cookjs/

The Java Web Start demo was actually harder to produce than my first thought, mostly due to Rhino's insistance of creating ClassLoader to load JavaScript byte code here and there, which cause security exceptions when running in a sandbox. See my comment on https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=190841#c3 for more information.... read more

CookXml Jython Extension Released.

This extension gives CookXml the scripting capability using Jython (http://www.jython.org/). Java Web Start demo is available at

http://cookxml.sourceforge.net/cookjython/

This feature mainly aims at Jython users who are more comfortable working with Python code rather than Java. This CookXml extension greatly simplifies GUI application development using Jython and XML.

For Java developers, I would suggest the BeanShell extension of CookXml as the scripting language for your GUI building.... read more

CookXml 2.0 Released

This new version of CookXml mainly addresses the concern of exception handling. It is now possible for developers to intercept exceptions and make decisions to suppress it, allowing the decoder to continue to work on the rest of the XML, or to generate an error, causing the decoder to immediately return with the error. Of course logging is very possible with this method.

CookSwing 1.1 released.

Mostly bug fixes and moving cookswing/ to cookxml/cookswing and move certain files out to cookxml/common. The changes were needed to avoid duplicate code with CookSwt.

Also added base and array tags. Use base to provide a virtual root so that multiple children could be specified to the virtual parent (the parent which can be specified with xmlDecode function). Array is intended for creating object arrays (including that of the primitive type).
