XML Processing Benchmark for Java measures and compares the performance of XML Processing programs. It considers operations such as parsing, transformation, validation, encryption and decryption, custom access and manipulation, or any combination of these applied to one or more XML files or byte streams. It consists of code to carry out certain XML processing tasks, code and script to run the processing tasks and report performance measurements, and a framework to plug code and scripts in for processing. It also allows for XStat Processing, which collects certain statistics about an XML file.
XED is a text editor for XML document instances. It is designed to support hand-authoring of small-to-medium-sized XML documents, and is optimized for keyboard input. It works very hard to ensure that you cannot produce a badly-formed document. Although it does not validate, the results of offline validation can be accessed, and it does read DTDs and keep track of your document structure, and provides context-based accelerators to make element and attribute entry fast and easy.
AlcoveBook DTD and stylesheets is a strict subset of the DocBook DTD. The ultimate goal is to provide a series of DTDs for enterprise use, commercial proposal, whitepaper, etc. For now, this is one single SGML DTD. The stylesheets are usable with both DocBook and AlcoveBook. They include a set of extensions over Norman Walsh's modular docbook stylesheets (docbook-dsssl), and a book- like layout for articles.
