XML is a popular markup language which is used because of its simplicity, generality, and usability. As a result, it is widely used in modern computing. It has also become the backbone of Web Services. However, when it comes to parsing an XML file, there is a serious issue of speed and efficiency. There have been many methods developed to speed up parsing. Modern techniques of speeding up XML parsing include utilizing the multiple cores of present day processors by following a parallel approach. This review describes a set of parallel techniques applied to DOM parser and SAX parser to improve parsing speed. It also inspects the differences among the various techniques developed and highlights the improvements made from one to another.
