StAX is a standard XML processing API that allows you to stream XML data from and to your application. It's a standard pull parser implementation for the java platform.

JDOM is, quite simply, a Java representation of an XML document. JDOM provides a way to represent that document for easy and efficient reading, manipulation, and writing. It has a straightforward API, is a lightweight and fast, and is optimized for the Java programmer. It's an alternative to DOM and SAX, although it integrates well with both DOM and SAX.
The Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) provides a fast and convenient way to bind between XML schemas and Java representations, making it easy for Java developers to incorporate XML data and processing functions in Java applications
VTD-XML is the next generation XML parser that goes beyond DOM and SAX in terms of performance, memory and ease of use.
To XML developers, VTD-XML is simple and just works!
Other innovative features include XML indexing (due to inherent persistence of VTD) and incremental update.
It is also the world's fastest XML processor: On an Athlon64 3400+ PC, VTD-XML significantly (1.5x~2x) outperforms SAX parsers with NULL content handler, delivering 50~60 MB/sec sustained throughput, without sacrificing random access. Its memory usage is typically between 1.3x~1.5x the size of the XML document, with 1 being the XML itself.
At a high level XMLBeans is an XML-Java binding tool that uses XML Schema as a basis for generating Java classes that you can use to easily access XML instance data in a natural manner in your Java programs. It was designed to provide both easy access to XML information via convenient Java classes as well as complete access to the underlying XML, combining the best of low-level APIs like SAX and DOM that provide full access with the convenience of Java binding.
There are several factors that set XMLBeans apart from any other XML-Java binding alternatives:
