XMLBeam: Snippets and Examples

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

XMLBeam is an interesting library using an approach of projecting parts of an XML DOM tree into Java using some simple interfaces, annotations and XPath expressions.

In the following article, I’d like to share three experiments of mine with this library for reading, writing XML and parsing a live RSS feed.


Screenscraping made easy using jsoup and Maven
