XML has become a defacto standard for data representation and exchange, XML data processing becomes more and more important for server workloads like web servers and database servers. One of the most time consuming part is XML document parsing. Parsing is a core operation performed before an XML document can be navigated, queried, or manipulated. Recently, high performance XML parsing has become a topic of considerable interest in this paper, the authors are presenting a performance study of XML data parsing by evaluating these parsers using time as a parameter.
