NekoPull is an XML document parsing API that extends the
Native Interface (XNI) to provide pull parsing
functionality. The pull parsing
paradigm is different from tree-based APIs like the
Model (DOM) and event stream APIs like the
Simple API for
XML (SAX) in that the application controls the
parsing of documents. NekoPull is similar to
lex in that the application requests, or
pulls, the document information one piece at
a time instead of having document information
pushed to the application.
This implementation of NekoPull is driven by the Xerces2 parser. As such, there are inherent limits based on the Xerces2 parser. However, the API itself does not have have these limits — other parsers can be written that implement the NekoPull API directly for optimal performance.
