An XML parser is a processor that reads an XML document and determines the structure and properties of the data. If the parser goes beyond the XML rules for well-formdness and validates the document against an XML DTD, the parser is said to be a "validating" parser. A generalized XML parser reads XML files and generates a hierarchically structured tree, then hands off data to viewers and other applications for processing. A validating XML parser also checks the XML syntax and reports errors.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
