The entire XML is parsed and a DOM tree (of the nodes in the XML) is generated and returned.
Once parsed, the user can navigate the tree to access the various data previously embedded in the various nodes in the XML.
In general, DOM is easier to use but has an overhead of parsing the entire XML before you can start using it.
The default JAXBElement Provider will check these resolvers first before attempting to create a JAXBContext on its own.
Finally, JAXBProvider provides a support for serializing response types and deserializing parameters of methods annotated with @Xml Java Type Adapter annotations.
Further guidelines for the use of XML in a networked context appear in RFC 3470, also known as IETF BCP 70, a document covering many aspects of designing and deploying an XML-based language.
The material in this section is based on the XML Specification.
But in the case of DOM parsing it will load all the nodes and make the tree model. Please correct me If I am wrong or explain to me event-based and tree model in a simpler manner. Using a SAX parser implies you need to handle these events and make sense of the data returned with each event.
In DOM, there are no events triggered while parsing.
In computing, Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a markup language that defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a format that is both human-readable and machine-readable.
The W3C's XML 1.0 Specification It is a textual data format with strong support via Unicode for different human languages.
XML has also provided the base language for communication protocols such as XMPP. XML has come into common use for the interchange of data over the Internet.
IETF RFC 7303 gives rules for the construction of Internet Media Types for use when sending XML.
The simplest way is to mark a given type with @Xml Root Element annotation.
