Hi,
I've downloaded the XML parser from IBM site. I know the concepts of XML. Can any one please suggest me which one is the best book for learning and writing programs in XML thoroughly.
Thanks,
Neelima.

well for christmas I got "Inside XML" by Steven Holzner. I haven't started to read it yet, it looks pretty good, it is not based entirely on java, it uses a mixture of java, perl, and javascript for its examples, so the book is pretty spread out as far as languages. From what I looked at in the book, it looks very good and worth the money but i would wait and see if anybody has read this book and get thier input on it.

I wish there was a button on my monitor to turn up the intellegince.
Theres a button called 'brightness' but it doesn't work

A really good book that focus heavily on using JAVA with XML is the O'reilly book "Java and XML" by Brett Mclauglin.
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0596000162/o/qid=978544183/sr=8-5/ref=aps_sr_b_3_1/002-2732461-1520001
You can also go to his website, www.jdom.org, to read more about Brett and JDOM.

Can you, by the way, tell me whether you can actually make use of the IBM parser which you have downloaded? Does not it shout when you compile your java application informing you that the Parser from IBM is deprecated?
Please let me know.

"Suraj",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please choose a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.

Suraj,
H....m, I didn't do programming using IBM parser. I've just downloaded and tested the examples given with the parser.
Thanx,
Neelima.

I think the best books available are Professional XML and XML by examples. I would the prefer the first.
