JayParser: an Invisible XML implementation in XSLT

Tom HillmanORCID logoeXpertML Ltd
In XML Prague this year I presented on a proof of concept grammar parser in XSLT. In this presentation I plan to release an open-source fully compliant Invisible XML parser based on this work. The presentation will demonstrate iXML parsing, some technical details of the implementation, and finish with a short overview of the advantages of this declarative approach of parsing text. I also hope to show how it is possible for the parser to extend itself to other grammar languages.
