Apache Axiom is an easy to use, free library that provides a StAX-based, XML Infoset compliant object model implementation which supports on-demand building of the object tree.
Apache Axiom supports a novel "pull-through" model which allows one to turn off the tree building and directly access the underlying pull event stream.
Apache Axiom also has built in support for XML Optimized Packaging (XOP) and MTOM, the combination of which allows XML to carry binary data efficiently and in a transparent manner.
The combination of these is an easy to use API with a very high performant architecture!
