I've been assigned to make a java search engine that can sort and display information about universities, according to certain criteria. I've decided to use xml since its universal and the data can be easily edited in excel. Can anyone suggest a good tutorial or give lend some advice on xml searching through java.

You can start with the XQuery page at W3C, and if you decide that's still the approach you want to take, then search for XQuery tutorials on Google.

You will also want to see if there is an implementation that you are comfortable with, and most of what I have seen is part of some larger product, like an app server or XML database. Scan through the products section of the W3C page referenced above.

If I were undertaking this project, I would check out the Saxon parser project as a good implementation of XQuery.

Good luck!

An alternative would be JXPath.

Also Lucene might be interesting to you - it's an open source Java search engine.
