On Jim's excellent suggestion, I spent yesterday porting Brent Simmons' Obj-C RSS parser class to Java. It was fairly easy, since I had the basic structure to go by. Also, I could use JDOM instead of the Carbon CFXML apis for XML parsing. (JDOM is a very Java-friendly API for XML).

It took me one day to port the code and to get it to compile, now I need to test it. I'll probably start small, then try it out on some of the feeds at Syndic8.

Once this is working and tested, I'll release it under the same BSD license as Brent's.
