xml analysis and processing tools

The Milyn Project is building Open-Source Java components to aid analysis and processing of XML/XHTML/HTML.


Smooks is the main Milyn component. It's a framework for analysing and/or transforming streamed data e.g. markup (XML/XHTML/HTML), images etc. Smooks does this in a manner that can be optimised for a given execution context e.g. in a Servlet Container, Smooks can optimise the Servlet Response based on the requesting browsers profile (e.g. pda, landscape, xforms).

Smooks can be used as a Java alternative to XSLT for XML transformation (see Chiba Integration).


Tinak is a component for performing browser recognition and browser profiling in a J2EE Servlet Container. It can be used to write JSP pages that can easily determine the exact make, model and profile (e.g. html, pda, landscape etc) of the requesting browser, adapting the delivered content accordingly. Easily add browser recognition and profiling capabilities directly to a Servlet or Servlet Filter.

Posted initial findings of integrating the Smooks Servlet Filter into the Chiba XForms Engine, replacing the Chiba XSLT transformation with a Smooks transformation. Response-time benchmarkings show Smooks to be up to x15 faster than XSLT for this type of transformation. See Chiba Integration for more details.

Posted a prototype version of the Smooks Report Generator.  Speed up creation/testing of websites that work across a range of browser types an versions!
