Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] docbook sgml Java parsers ?

Jean-Christophe Helary <fusion@mx6.tiki.ne.jp> was heard to say:

> Are there any DocBook sgml parsers in Java, possible GPL compatible ?

If you're looking for a general-purpose SGML parser implemented in Java, the
answer is probably no. The Cover pages
(http://xml.coverpages.org/publicSW.html#parsers) do not list one. The page was
last updated in 2002, but I consider it unlikely that someone wrote a SGML
parser at a time when everyone was busy doing XML.

However, if you're looking for a way to parse DocBook documents in Java one way
or another, consider transforming the SGML documents to XML (e.g. by means of
osx). You could then use any Java XML parser.
