Hi,

I am new to XML. I need some good book to start with. I need to parse an XML and validate it using JAVA API. So please help me in finding the right book to start with. I dont know which API to use(SAX, DOM, JDOM....).

Thanks in advance

The book I use has been published online so you can sample it or read the whole thing. It is not entirely up to date with the latest Java 1.6 library but thats the way it goes in the Java and XML world.

Before starting, you should have the latest SDK installed, then jump right in and start experimenting. When you have a question, browse the old conversations in this forum, the same things come up often.
