I am not sure about exact difference between XML Parser & Processor.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Hi!
An XML processor processes XML data to produce some kind of result, for instance HTML data.
An XML parser reads XML data, in order to "understand" it and, for instance, tell your application when an element is read, when an attribute is read etc.
Best wishes!

Thanks for parsing (reading) & processing (action) the query.
