Hi.

I have a simple xml document and i need to parse it and edit. I think with DOM then.
I have no idea from where to start from. When i first read about java and XML i had to download and install some packages ... and allready this was too confusing for such a simple task.

So what i want to know is if I use java 1.42 standard edition and i want to mess around with DOM - is it possible without installing any other packages.

Allso what package i must import to be able to do it?
