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).

Sub Components


A component for performing browser recognition and browser profiling in a J2EE Servlet Container.


A component for parsing Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) data into a Document Object Model (DOM).

Posted Smooks Templating Cartridge. Extends the power of the Smooks JavaBean Cartridge by allowing bean populated StringTemplate based XML transformations. See Smooks Cartridges for more details.

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!
