Persistency Library: XML parsing and Xpath navigation with VTD-XML

This library has 26 classes.

ECF: vtd-xml.ecf

Classes for scanning XML documents and building Eiffel objects from XML contexts defined by relative Xpaths. Based on the VTD-XML parser. This is a full implemenation of Xpath 1.0.

VTD-XML uses a very fast and efficient method of building a compressed representation of an XML object using virtual token descriptors.

Using the Eiffel API is considerably easier and more intuitive to use than the original Java or C version of VTD-XML.

A substantial C-bridge was developed to make Eiffel work better with VTD-XML. The original VTX-XML code was forked to make it possible to compile it with the MSC compiler. This fork is found under contrib/C.
