Hi,

I have started looking for jobs after a sabbatical of about a year or so. Now, I have used XML only for configuration - like SQL maps for iBATIS, struts-config, application resources, etc.

During my last interview, I was asked whether I have parsed any XML?

Now, I want to know when do you specifically parse xml? What are the usage scenarios? How or where are you guys using xml?

If you consume XML in your code -- i.e., if you're coding iBATIS or anything else that uses XML for configuration or input data -- then you need to parse XML; that's always the first step. This includes virtually all programming with XML, as opposed to simply preparing XML documents to use as input to some piece of software.
