relationship with Xerces?
How does this release compare with Apache Xerces? There are IBM developers working on Xerces, and IIRC, source code from IBM was used as the foundation for Xerces. Xerces also seems to support more XML-related standards, and has a much more liberal license.
Are there any reasons to choose this product over Xerces?
