Title: kOmniXML for Lazarus and Delphi
Post by: avra on November 06, 2013, 08:25:12 am
I was looking for a long time for XML library that works on both Delphi and Lazarus, and finally found Kluug's fork of OmniXML for Delphi that now claims to be also working on Lazarus 1.0.8 and newer. I guess that someone else might also find this interesting. Can't wait for a real chance to test it.

I am glad it is of some use. I have also converted 7 original Delphi demos to Lazarus, and added one new demo that was created during my initial playing.

Have fun!

Actually, I wrote a new XML library for Pascal:
http://www.kluug.net/oxml.php (http://www.kluug.net/oxml.php)

The main reason for a new library was that OminXML is a DOM-only library. OXml allows direct reading and writing of XML files, has a DOM implementation and a SAX parser. Works in Lazarus and Delphi 6-XE5. And is faster and more memory friendly than OmniXML :)

Great work, Ondrej. It was also very interesting to see Delphi vs Lazarus benchmark results.

Thanks. Yes, Lazarus performs pretty well!

Others should be warned that OXML license is much different then OmniXML. Some will be fine with it, but I am not. Hopefully others will realize this before spending lots of time. Silly me, I wasn't paying attention. Sorry Ondrej, nice work but I am forced to switch back to OmniXML...

Since Kluug's fork of OmniXML is abandoned, maybe I should mention that original OmniXML is still developed:
