Chapter 20. Advanced XML > How ColdFusion Parses XML

How ColdFusion Parses XML

In the preceding chapter, we talked briefly about how to parse XML with ColdFusion, but we did not give you much background on how ColdFusion handles XML documents internally. This section covers how ColdFusion actually works with XML behind the scenes to help you understand how to work with XML so that you can better utilize XML in ColdFusion and avoid various problems that can arise when working with XML.

ColdFusion MX currently makes use of the open-source XML parsers from the Apache Project, which can be found at http://xml.apache.org. ColdFusion uses the Crimson XML parser for Java. It also uses the Xalan parser for Java as the XSLT processor that it accesses using the Java XML parser API from SUN called JAXP (http://javax.xml.parsers) to tie it into MX.
