1Prior research on the acceleration of XML processing
2using SIMD and multi-core parallelism has lead to
3a number of interesting research prototypes.  This work
4investigates the extent to which the techniques underlying
5these prototypes could result in systematic performance
6benefits when fully integrated into a commercial XML parser.
7The widely used Xerces-C++ parser of the Apache Software
8Foundation was chosen as the foundation for the study.
9A systematic restructuring of the parser was undertaken,
10while maintaining the existing API for application programmers.
11Using SIMD techniques alone, an increase in parsing speed
12of at least 50\% was observed in a range of applications.
13When coupled with pipeline parallelism on dual core processors,
14improvements of 2x and beyond were realized.
