RSSLibJ


In a comment to a previous entry about more RSS fixes, Joseph pointed out that:

You might want to look at RSSLibJ, which takes a common object model (items/channels/etc) and renders an RDF/RSS stream according to the type you want, so you can change a string and get a completely different (valid) feed.
Nice! I didn't know RSSLibJ could do that, though I was aware of its existence, for some reason I thought that it was "just" a Java library to parse RSS files, but it's more than that, in fact, the FAQ points out that it is primarily intended for writing RSS feeds rather than reading them.

As a sidenote, my main complaint was that all of these versions of RSS have to be supported at all. One should be enough, either 1.0 or 2.0.

Pointless griping, I know. Just venting.
