Scala implicits to make using the XOM XML library easier in Scala, and to make using Saxon's XPath 2 support easier. Usage ----- import net.surguy.xom.Implicits._ import scala.xml._ // Create Scala XML objects as normal val scalaXml = <root>Some text about <b>XML</b> and <b>other things</b></root> // Convert them to XOM val xomXml = scalaXml.toXom // Use XPath 2 from Saxon against them val foundNodes = xomXml.selectNodes("//b[matches(.,'X.*')]") // Use Scala iterators with XOM xomXml.elements.foreach( _.addAttribute(new nu.xom.Attribute("new","value")) ) // Convert XOM to Scala xomXml.toScalaXml Note that the conversion from Scala XML to XOM, and from XOM to Saxon's OM, is not hugely inefficient but any process that converts XML between formats multiple times is not going to be particularly performant. Build and dependencies ---------------------- This library depends on XOM and on Saxon-B. It should also be compatible with Saxon-SA. It is not compatible with the latest version of Saxon, Saxon-HE, which has removed support for models like XOM. This library can be built with Maven or with SBT.
