Microsoft Releases Public Beta of XML Parser

Microsoft Corp. has launched the public beta release of the third version of its XML parser, making it possible to apply XML services to applications. The program is available for download from the MSDN XML Development Center.

The latest version of the program makes SAX2 - the Simple API for XML programming interface - accessible through Visual Basic without the need to download an entire file. Previously, XML files were readable through Visual C++ through the program.

The program achieved a passing rate of more than 98 percent using the OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structural Information Standards) Conformance Test Suite, which calls for synergy among developers regarding the XML processing language. The general product is expected to be available for web release this fall.

The beta release is available for download at http://msdn.microsoft.com/xml/default.asp. - Ted Williams
