Java Classpath for Mac OS X Leopard

April - 2009

Doing a little Java development on the Mac. Just making a note to myself about XOM (an XML Object Model). According to the web site, "XOM™ is a new XML object model. It is an open source (LGPL), tree-based API for processing XML with Java that strives for correctness, simplicity, and performance, in that order.", and "XOM is designed to be easy to learn and easy to use. It works very straight-forwardly, and has a very shallow learning curve. Assuming you're already familiar with XML, you should be able to get up and running with XOM very quickly."

Sounds worthy of looking into.

From a higher perspective, in order to utilize XOM the xom-1.2.1.jar file (which can be downloaded from the XOM page), must be added to the Java class path. On Macs, one possible location for this is '/Library/Java/Extensions/'.
