Think of this book as if it were really called Everything You Wanted to Know About SAX. It provides a quick tutorial, while also serving as a complete reference that explains how to use this popular XML API effectively and efficiently. You'll find motivations for every programming interface and see how to build components for your application (or specialized environment) on top of SAX.
The information in this book is based on the current version of the Java language support for SAX2. For any further updates to SAX2, see the SAX web site at http://www.saxproject.org.
