I've been using the new "implementation-independent"
XPath interface in Java 1.5 but have come to look at
Jaxen because the Xalan reference implementation of
XPath in the Java release is so appallingly
(inacceptably) slow. Every method seems to have a 0.25
second delay built in! Jaxen is just SO MUCH FASTER
(about 100 times faster in my experiments).
So my question is: do you Jaxen people have any plans
to support the XPath interfaces in Java 1.5 in the near
future, so I can just plug Jaxen into my app? Or do I
have to hand-craft all my code to your interfaces (that
would be a real turn-off)?
I think supporting these interfaces is a real
opportunity for Jaxen to get used more, but something
else that would help is if you people could just push
out a new release. It's been ages since v1.0 and there
are a number of important patches (that you can't
easily install because the build.pl file in the release
fails due to missing files). Any chance of a "tidying
up" release any time soon?
Thanks for your time.
