Woodstox usage within Geronimo
From the latest news: it looks like Geronimo (open source Application Server) project is officially using Woodstox as its default Stax implementation: see this article. Nice! "First we take Manhattan... then we take Berlin!" (as reported earlier, Glassfish is switching to Woodstox also, and if I am not mistaken, JBoss is already using Woodstox). Maybe this is how interoperability of Stax implementations will converge to 100%... :-)
It is of course also nice to see more tutorials on Stax usage, especially when the cursor API is present along with the Event API, explaining the performance difference. But here's hoping that soon there will be more articles about intermediate or expert-level usage of Stax: by now there a few tutorials (check out reference list at the end of the aforementioned article!).
Also coming soon: I will try to find time to write something about the "Typed Stax API extensions" (see Santiago's blog for some discussion), since it will probably be the most significant new feature for Woodstox 4.0.
