The driver development kit provides a set of base classes that can be extended to simplify and speed the development of XML:DB API drivers. These classes are used to provide the basis for the reference implementation and therefore a simple example of how a driver can be implemented. Using the SDK classes significantly reduces the amount of code that must be written to create a new driver.
Along with the SDK base classes the SDK also contains a set of jUnit test cases that can be used to help validate the driver while it is being developed. The test cases are still in development but there are enough tests currently to be useful.
