SAX is a simple event-based API for XML parsers. It is not an official standard, since it was developed by the participants of the xml-dev mailing list instead of a standards body. However, SAX is very much a de facto standard, since it is supported by most XML parsers and is used by lots of applications
SAX2 is an extended version of the original SAX 1.0 API for XML parsers, which is now obsolete. SAX 2.0 adds support for XML namespaces, configurability as well as lexical and DTD information.
