XML

XML, the Extensible Markup Language, is a universal syntax for describing and structuring data independent from the application logic. Several JSRs focus on developing Java technology APIs specifically targeted at building XML-based applications.

173 Streaming API for XML
Description: The Streaming API for XML (StAX) is a Java based API for pull-parsing XML.
Status: Withdrawn
Reason: Since version 1.0, JSR 173 StAX API has been distributed as both a standalone technology and part of the Java SE. The API has been stable without any significant changes since then and the need to use newer releases of the StAX API with shipping releases of Java SE has mostly disappeared in recent years.

In accordance with JCP 2.10 Process Document, 3.3.1.4 Platform inclusion, we are announcing the end of JSR 173 StAX Standalone distribution. After MR5, StAX 1.4, the technology that JSR 173 defines will be delivered as a part of the Java SE solely. Future changes in the StAX API will be defined through the Platform JSR.

The subsumption of the StAX API into the Platform JSR does not change any mechanisms defined in StAX. The service provider interfaces are the same except that they will then be directly specified in the Platform JSR. Deployment of alternative implementations of the StAX APIs will continue to be supported.
