Fast Infoset and Fast Web Services

Guest Author

The Java/XML Duke

The FastInfoset project is part of GlassFish
and provides an implementation of
ITU-T Rec. X.891 | ISO/IEC 24824-1
(yep, a double standard spec!).
It is a good implementation and comes with both StAX and SAX bindings,
supports embedded binary data, and it has been used in other projects
like in XJ3D to manipulate
X3D and VRML documents.

Paul recently wrote about how nice it is to
solve a
customer problem

The performance was pretty horrible though and I was \*just\* about to
write a binary encoded XML mechanism when I came across your Fast
Infoset stuff - which did \*exactly\* what I needed and saved a whole
bunch of development and testing. It worked first time too!

In a related blog, Paul also explains the

difference between Fast WebServices and Fast InfoSet
