groovy XmlParser and XmlSlurper
July 5, 2013Posted by on
I am absolutely astonished by functionality of groovy classes XmlParser and XmlSlurper. The both are similar to each other, with one important difference: XmlParser is more DOM-like (all data in memory), while XmlSlurper is more SAX-like (data parsing delayed until needed).
The most charming thing is how both work together with closures, regexps and collection methods. I am seriously thinking about shifting all XML-specific code to these facilities.
